"Daniel was involved in quite a few key projects during his time on my team. In his first week on the job he showed us how to use taxonomy tokens to configure a blog post path, which cleanly solved a requirement we would have tackled with custom code and extra dev time. Daniel is a dedicated, detail-oriented team member who will not rest until the system works cleanly, whether that be Javascript, tricky CSS, templates, responsive design or any other front-end task."
