  Working with Mark was a great experience. Mark is a fantastic programmer and his business and communication skills are just as well equaled. His work was always done on time and his demos were completely thorough showcasing the complete potential of the project. I'm happy to give Mark a rating of 10 and highly recommend him as the programmer of choice.

Mark, thank you for your work and I look forward to doing more business in the future.
