someone a genius. Jeff is one of the very few for whom I maintain that word."

"As a professor, Jeffrey worked closely with the other faculty members in preparing materails for his courses. I have visited his class and have been impressed by his effectiveness with our students, His lectures are well planned and thorough and his knowledge of and enthusiasm for the material are obvious."

"Jeff came to us at Blue Fang to lead the technical side of transforming our 10 year old traditional game company into a modern online game company.
He designed the entire online stack for what was intended to be an online destination site and then turned on a dime to repurpose the design as a massively multiplayer facebook game. Our first such game, Zoo Kingdom, shortly after launch was the second fastestgrowing game on Facebook.
The systens Jeff designed and managed the construction of behaved flawlessly under exceptional usage and were more secure then those of our number one competitor. (Zynga.)"
VP of Worldwide Development
"Jeff was one of the best Lecturers I've had at Northeastern. Even after class had ended he would stay in class to answer any questions I had. He was a wealth of knowledge in any aspect of Computer Science. I would Recommend any class that he teaches regardless of the topic."
