Client Reviews

Fairly responsive!
Thanks for the interview! For our current situation you're not the right fit, however we could imagine working with you in the future
Wonderfully competent engineer and explains his work better than most. I just needed someone with deeper machine learning experience but I will be considering Adrian down the line when I have more specific front end needs. Thank you Adrian for your time!! :-)
