“As a former teacher myself, as well as one who is pretty familiar with a good number of softwares pertaining to Graphic Design and Video Production... I can both accurately and happily attest to Leo's abilities. He is an outstanding teacher. And his knowledge of the material is nothing short of amazing. Actually, before the Final Cut Pro class was over I was already decided that any further training needs I may have in this area in the future would be first attempted to be met with Leo. Leo truly knows his stuff, has a great passion for it and is a GREAT teacher. This is the essence of an outstanding value equation... knowledge of subject matter, people skills that ENABLE passing this knowledge along, and a firm grasp of so many things that go into being a terrific teacher. You can't miss with Leo.”

“Leo's work as a videographer is of high artistic quality and also technically state of the art. He is relaxed, personable and professional from start to finish. Leo showed up with high quality video and audio equipment, and for only two hours filmed live performance and conducted interviews — then, two days later he delivered an excellently edited, beautifully photographed and recorded short video to help us raise money for a project. Leo captured the essence of the project and the personalities involved perfectly. The film was compelling, honest, direct, convincing and just plain beautiful, too. His intelligence as an editor shows real talent as a director and artist. There is no doubt that Leo's work as a photographer, videographer, audio engineer, and editor are remarkable and I would use him again for any project.”
