Testimonials

"Austin does a great job dealing with high pressure situations by maintaining a sense of calm and collectedness. He is extremely reliable and knows how to prepare for things in advance. Honestly, I could go on and on about how well Austin did this year in terms of his position, but I'll save you the time and energy by saying this: Austin is an excellent team member who has thrived this year."

Robbie Williford, RHPB Graduate Assistant

"He [Austin] has stepped up to take on any challenge that is presented to him. He has walked into this role not having a clue what it entailed as being a field rep and managing jobs. Austin has walked away with earning the respect from the whole Team as well as the client's for an outstanding job here at Animal Kingdom."

Tim Familo, Project Field Rep

"Austin was able to use his engineering knowledge and apply it directly to the tasks assigned. He also showed, on multiple occasions, a strong ability to quickly learn new skills and apply those news skills to actionable tasks which produce results. He is an independent thinker, not just looking to accomplish an assignment, but figuring out how to accomplish the assignment and make it more meaningful to the group."

Todd Aznavorian, Director of RF System Performance
