Eddie is a results-oriented designer who is has excellent people skills and even more remarkable creative and design capabilities. I have known Eddie for more than 10 years, first as my student at UNCP, and then as a friend and creative partner on several projects. His results are first rate, timely, and qualitatively always beyond what I expect. I highly recommend Eddie as a designer and a colleague … he is truly exceptional.

Eddie is an innovative graphic artist who can take your ideas and requirements and make them a reality. He will exceed your expectations every time. He uses the most current industry standards, equipment, software and all of his work is professional looking. His attention to detail really shines in all of his work, all the way down the the last pixel.His upbeat personality makes him a great addition to the office environment. His ability to juggle multiple assignments is astonishing and yet he can still make Monday’s enjoyable!
