Sara Andrews
We worked together  •  Partnerships, emPower LLC and Founder and CEO, Bumbleroot Foods.
Adrian is one of a kind. One of the best sculptors in California, he took his design skills and applied them to developing beautiful apps. ... I wouldn't call him an app designer though - he's the whole package - he develops the idea, understands the user, and creates a beautiful experience. If there's something he doesn't know, he figures it out...oh - like that time he taught himself how to code! And he delivers - over and over. On top of that, he's also just one of my favorite people, period.
They're my friends  •  Distinguished Journalist in Residence, Dominican University of California and Artist, Old Brooklyn Studios.
Adrian is an exceptional person. He is inquisitive, inventive and intellecually agile. I know him first as an fine artist, a sculptor. His ... work is beautiful and thoughtfully created, crafted from both an exquisite eye and hand. Art requires finely tuned problem solving skills and Adrian has a great aptitude for untangling complexities. He uses his analytical skills to build computer programs for fun and profit. He is very hard working, and energized by learning new things. Adrian is impressive and on track to contribute something significant to improve the quality of all our lives.
Balazs Hornok
We worked together  •  VP Business Development, emPower LLC. Previously Senior Associate, Allianz Real Estate.
Adrian is the perfect multidisciplinary entrepreneur. He gets design, he gets technology, and he gets stuff done.
Christopher Lim
We worked together  •  iOS Mobile Engineer, Tinder, Inc. and iOS Student, Self Employed: Learning iOS. University of California, Irvine grad.
Skilled in both aesthetics (design, layouts, visual and artistic) and also technical (started as QA but became a developer at an old startup ... we worked together on), Adrian has a great drive to learn and execute no matter what the task is at hand. He's great to work with and listens to colleagues and advisors. Would definitely work with him again if our paths ever cross.
