Multimedia Designer Lead at GD Mission Systems

"Demetrius is that rare kind of person that can not only be relied on but trusted to give an honest opinion and a true effort; I have found his input to be invaluable. Demetrius is designer that posses an eye for detail, a desire to branch out beyond the status quo, never in fear of what he doesn’t know, freely shares what he does know, and still watches those requirements and customer expectations. As a part of my team, Demetrius has branched way out from his comfort zone and took on roles and responsibilities that most people would consider “above their pay grade”. I can honestly say that I have taken advantage of Demetrius’ willingness to be the absolute best he can be; and I do not regret it. Demetrius is a consummate professional, skilled creative, and a trusted team member. He never turns away from criticism, always listens to those around him, is even tempered, and a valuable member of any team he becomes a part of."

Senior Developer at AppedOn

"Demetrius is one of the most talented visual designers I have ever met, his ninja like style of creating an awesome layout is sure to leave any client with a dropped jaw and open billfold before they even know what hit them. He is excellent working with developers, understanding both their needs and constraints, something that, from personal experience, is invaluable in any great designer. Demetrius is truly a pleasure to work with, as a designer and a manager, his soft spoken firm touch is very effective and helps to inspire those around him without causing frustration and unnecessary tension. Even on those 12+ hour days, he keeps his cool and focus on the task at hand."
