Steve Morgan
We worked together  •  Senior Developer, QuikOrder®. Previously Manager of Web Development, Sears Holdings Corporation.
Jourdan's wide array of experiences allow him to make fast judgement calls based on experience and industry know-how.
Roneesh Vashisht, Programmer and Engineer
We worked together  •  Web Developer, Sears Holdings Corporation and Voting Member, ASTM.
He clearly knows design, he can hustle and he's shown an ability to create. He's the only dude I know making money off a patent, teaching an ... d a UX job all at once. In short he is seriously impressive.
