Dan Newman
We worked together  •  Founder Post.As. Full stack engineer and designer.
Dan is fantastic to work with. He is communicative, drive and effective. Dan has a good sense of design and product as well as engineering c ... hops. Combined the two make a very forceful combination. He is easy to get along with and would be a valuable asset to any team.

Arsenio Santos
We worked together  •  CTO, The Daily Dot. Previously: Co-Founder & CTO, Circa 1605, Inc.. Columbia University grad.
Arsenio was the CTO/Cofounder of Circa where I was the first non-technical hire and Chief Content Officer. He was amazing to work with. I al ... ways knew the status of our technical situation, where we were headed, and what the challenges were. Moreover, Arsenio was responsive to the technical needs of my team. He was great to work with. In addition to always being on top of his game - he was fun to work with. I enjoyed our conversations and truly think of him as a friend. He is level headed, smart and motivated to always put out his best.
