Eve (Powell) Orio at Perficient

"Art is one of those rare people who is highly skilled at what he does, yet truly open to others’ ideas and needs. It was always a joy to work with him – not just because of his excellent work ethic, but also because of his willingness to dig deeper or even entirely rethink the approach to a project if that’s what was called for. Oh, and all the things Art’s other recommendations mention about his great personality are absolutely true. If you seek an outstanding UX researcher who is a joy to have on the team, look no further than Art."
