Jon has started his own company before and is has the ability to both grasp the big picture as well as dog into the details.
Mandy Rotella
We worked together at space150  •  Co-Founder, PURE: Experience Research and Design. Previously UX Designer, NativeX.
Jon is passionate about the UX industry. He is driven by good work and well-though solutions. Jon has corporate and agency experience giving ... him a well-rounded book of knowledge for any potential client he encounters. I highly recommend Jon for any UX project and have no doubt he will be a successful agency owner.
Jon Roberts
We worked together at Martin Williams  •  UX Consultant, Martin Williams and Founder/CEO & UI/UX Architect, Firelyte.
I've had the opportunity to work with Jon on a very large project while at Martin Williams and I picked up some new techniques from him. He ... learned from some of the leaders in the UX community from his work at Yahoo! and other ventures which give him an edge. Jon is already an entrepreneur, he has his own UX company and I highly recommend working with him due to his passion for the user experience and improving interaction design on the web.
