Ted is very collaborative by nature, effective in meeting his commitments and consistently drives to improve work/product quality. He actively engages with team members, managers and clients to deliver on his commitments. Ted openly and activly seeks out feedback on his approach and effectiveness. He is by nature curious and this pushes him to improve his technical knowledge and drive his work forward.

Ted keeps up with more technologies than most of the technologists I have worked with, and brought an excellent mix of superior technical skills and great teamwork to all his assignments. One of the things that I found most gratifying was to see Ted's growth as an architect and technical leader through the significant programs he worked on over the years.
