Ash's talents in communication, CG art, animation, writing, media arts, and computers are immense. As the owner of two studios, both of which I have worked with him through, I can easily say how valuable his talent is and how much potential he really has. He is professional, works hard, and is a very determined individual that has a bright future. He is a joy to work with and his art is amazing. I definitely recommend his work!

I have known Ash for a few years, although I originally got to know of him through his digital art that was making the rounds on forums etc. I was impressed with his work and dedication to his art from the beginning. Now as a friend, I find that I am constantly in awe of the new and creative ideas that I see him produce, as well as his professionalism and reliability for the projects he does for other people. I couldn’t recommend him any higher for his work and dedication.

Ash has helped me a great deal with one of my storyboard projects as he has a lot of experience in creating them. He is very reliable and very professional with the people he works with. If there's a problem, he'll always find a solution.

I already know Ash for quite a time, and I must say that my vision of him being extraordinary talented, cunning and capable haven't changed a bit from my first impression. He is very responsible and reliable; I admire his communicative skills and his ability to effectively organize and manage all the work that he does - these are the qualities of a true professional.
