Jeremy Batts
We worked together  •  3D Artist, Atlatl Software. Previously Senior Lead Multimedia Developer, Fulcrum Co..
I have the utmost respect and confidence in Jud's knowledge and abilities after working with him for several years in the software industry. ... He is well versed in multiple programming languages mated with a keen sense of software architecture, and all levels of development. He is always defining clean code practices that become integral to his projects and team. His sense and practice in project management has spanned many levels of the corporate hierarchy in which he always garnered a mutual respect from all his team and peers. He is experienced in both traditional and contemporary project management styles that compliment todays changing landscape. I personally look to him as a mentor in many regards, and has my complete endorsement as a candidate that can, and will make great strides in defining and improving any considerations in low and high level software development and management. Beyond all of this, Jud is just a cool guy. His personality meshes well with anyone, and is just a decent person to be around and work with.

I worked with Jeremy for a number of years at Fulcrum, during which time he repeatedly proved himself to be capable, versatile and adaptable ... , whether as a designer, a developer or a project manager. He is a self-motivated and conscientious worker who is always prepared to go the extra mile to make sure the job is done on time, and is done properly. All that combined with a positive outlook and an excellent sense of humor mean that he is a pleasure to work with, and I certainly look forward to working with him again should the opportunity arise
