“ Elan's work on my website davidkrulik.com has always had a special place in my memory. It was the very first website I endeavored to create, and the experience of working with Elan is marked by a few things, the least of which was his professionalism from start to finish, tirelessness in making sure the site was prefect and the fact that he was just a really cool guy to work with. This was 3 years ago. I can only imagine that since then, Elan's skills and technical prowess have only grown and matured. He comes highly recommended. ”
