We worked together
Very driven to get things done. Can make great products and is very easy to get alone. I enjoyed working with him.

Henry is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. Henry is intelligent, thoughtful, pragmatic and works well with others. He is an ... outstanding developer with excellent leadership skills. Henry is someone who can see the bigger picture and can clearly define the priorities and process to achieving it. His career is definitely one to watch.
