Alex and I graduated together from Wesleyan University, and we have been friends throughout our college careers. Ever since freshman year when we took General Physics together I have known that Alex knows his numbers, but the number that I will always remember from him is 9. This man guarantees me that that's how many hours a night a person should sleep to be truly alive and well and happy, and Alex is living proof of the success of this little known fact. I would just think back to the countless times all of our classmates would be freaking out about an upcoming exam and Alex would just be care-free because he was confident that he had been well prepared for the exam. Now it could just be that Alex is ridiculously smart, but I think it's more a testament to the fact that Alex had to be so efficient with his time due to the predetermined amount of time he allowed himself to be awake. This set of 9 hours of sleep allows Alex to feel refreshed each and every single day to allow him to fully concentrate and maximize what we does while awake. So all in all, Alex is a Master of numbers because he actually lives by his numbers, or number I should say, and has been very successful doing it.See MoreRead Less
I know Jason from our time at Alma College together - we were teammates on the soccer team together, as well as classmates and roommates during our time there. Jason helped me get acclimated to college by serving as my mentor on the soccer team. He's a very helpful and selfless person, and it shows. He's always willing to help others out. Personally, I know my college experience would have been much more difficult without Jason around, always willing to share his insights and experiences with me.
While in school together, it was easy to see his ambition and a goal-oriented perspective in everything that he did. He's always determined to excel beyond his goals. He knew how to prioritize his schoolwork and extracurricular activities, such as soccer or campus events. He was also very well organized and managed his time well. It was as if though Jason was already operating like he had been working as a professional for years.
Finally, Jason is always willing to be a people developer and add value whenever an opportunity presents itself. If Jason is ahead on his work, or has time to contribute his efforts to his team members of friends, he is always willing to do so - and this improved overall work outputs. He also took the time to think critically about his tasks and determine the best ways to produce the most positive outputs. He thinks "big picture" and it always benefits everyone around him. Bottom line, it's obvious that Jason is an exceptional young professional - just spend some time with him and it's impossible to miss.See MoreRead Less

I have a bit of a bias since I've lived with Clare for almost eighteen years, but she has always been, and continues to be, the best sister anyone could ask for. I would even go so far as to consider her my hero. In fact, I wrote an essay about her in the eighth grade on why she was my American hero (and no, she did not pay me). Clare is the most intelligent, funny, caring, hard-working, person I know. She always helps me with my homework, even when she would rather watch “Nashville” or it is going on two o’clock in the morning. Clare is a woman of many talents. She can recite and discuss passages from the classics, debate any issue, and order meals in flawless French. She is the type of person you can ask for anything and she will get it done as fast as she can. I can always tell when she’s working hard because she won’t answer for about ten minutes, but it turns out she was (usually) actually listening. Clare is an all-around great person. She brightens the lives of everyone she knows.See MoreRead Less
I've had the pleasure of working with Ben for more than three years now, and can confidently say that he is the quintessential front-end craftsman.
Dylan is the scientific mind behind Wedge. He plans, he practices, he compares methods of execution, and makes sure he maximizes his use of the products provided to him to do the job. Without him, your project just won't do as well.
How do I know? I worked with him as one of the volunteer artists on Wedge Detroit's project, "Hopscotch Detroit". Dylan tested and re-tested various methods to create a chalk paint that could be mass-produced so that there would be enough material to cover 4 miles of the stuff, and then some for emergencies and re-painting. I vividly remember him coming up with different methods, testing them out on a spare sidewalk, talking out what he was doing to me so even I could understand. Then with the help of his team mates, they picked the best method.
What Dylan was aiming for was a chalk paint that could last a few days and last through tough weather so everyone in the city could enjoy the hopscotch patterns we painted, even after our project was done. It turns out the paint was so strong, some of it didn't wash away for a month.
Now that, is scientific application and dedication.See MoreRead Less

I met Nathan for the first time around 6 years ago, when he was planning to move an editing business from excel to an automated web site. After some meetings and email exchanges we were able to define the initial requirements. Since then it was always easy to agree and plan each feature he was adding to the site. He had a very clear picture of the roadmap for that project and how to prioritize each stage.
Several times he told me about a friend who had an idea for a start-up and if I would be interested about being part of it. So at the end I told him that if he was part of the plan I would jump in it.
Now he is one of stik.com co-founders and has to manage a whole team, where everybody feels great about having him as a boss. He is not just very smart and open minded, he is also a very friendly and easy to talk with man. It is always a pleasure to work with somebody who is conflictless.See MoreRead Less
I work with Matt at Stik, and I often find myself wondering how tech companies survive without Matt Kahl. Matt is an unbelievably knowledgeable and talented developer who seems to be able to solve literally every problem. On top of that, he is an A+ level communicator and can explain complicated subjects in clear, intuitive ways. And as if he didn't already have it all, he's also got a great sense of humor, a get-it-done attitude, and smooth dance moves that he's not afraid to bust out.See MoreRead Less
