Malachi was fantastic to work with and is an inspiring developer. Precise programmer who solves problems with elegant solutions. Malachi is a great team player, knowledgeable, professional, master of his tools. I'm glad I had the chance to work with such talent.

Julien Verfaillie, Senior Android Developer, New Frontier Nomads

I have known Malachi for several years and have learned many things from him and this most recent opportunity to work together is no exception. Malachi continually seeks solutions to enhance, improve or otherwise increase productivity, effectiveness and efficiency in the products that he designs and delivers. Malachi takes his responsibilities to heart and is very considerate of all factors that influence the final deliverable. I appreciate the time Malachi takes to ensure any deliverables that he may be working on are clearly communicated with expectations outlining what steps are needed to move forward to release. Malachi is also driven to automate the process up to the creation of the final deliverable (making my life and the release process much easier). I would welcome the chance to work with Malachi in the future.

Scott Worley, Release Engineer, PlayHaven

Malachi is one of the top engineers at Sharp. I have worked with him closely on two projects both of which were enhanced greatly by his recommendations for tools and his ability to integrate them into existing infrastructure. Malachi also has impressive experience with Java and the open source community. Also, he takes particular care at insuring that all edge cases are covered in his coding which speaks well to his professionalism and experience. He has been a valuable member of the teams on which we have worked together.

Will Hough, Software Engineer, Sharp Labs of America

Malachi is an highly qualified software engineer, with a solid grasp on Java, the language of the project we worked on together. I would gladly work with him again should the opportunity present itself, and recommend him, without qualification, to anyone looking to add a productive, self motivating, skilled engineer to their team.

Mark Hanley, Senior Member Technical Staff, Sharp Labs of America

Malachi is productive, a good problem solver and enthusiastic about his work. He's prompt and works hard to finish his tasks. It was a pleasure to work with him on the Android software development project.

Ben Gibbs, Senior Product Planning Manager, Sharp Labs of America

Malachi has worked with me for 12 years. In that time I have found him to be dependable and accurate.

Douglas Naimo, President, Triggerfinger Software

Malachi is a great problem solver and can quickly come up with an elegant solution taking advantage of the latest technology available. The solutions that Malachi comes up with are extensible and solid in design. Malachi has a propensity for finding answers to questions with very little effort which I believe lends itself to Malachi's innate ability to solving problems with technology. I would highly recommend Malachi to working with any team and would always be happy to continue to work with him in any capacity possible. Malachi will definitely add value to the bottom line!

Scott Worley, Senior Configuration Manager, ARRIS Group, Inc.

Malachi is an innovative, positive, focused Engineer and Architect; he brings out the best in people and is someone who handles pressure well while solving complicated problems. Malachi is an asset to any team he is a part of.

Justin Lacche (La'Kay), PMP, MBA, Program Manager 2, ARRIS

Malachi contacted me about a potential opportunity to transition work that he'd been doing at his client site, and with his guidance and involvement, the process went smoothly, satisfying both Semprian and our mutual client. Malachi was an excellent resource during the transition period and positioned Semprian to be quite successful in taking over the work.

Michael Van Kleeck, CEO/ Chief Consultant, Semprian

When a customer of mine had questions that were outside of my personal experience with software development, I asked Malachi for his advice and experience. Not only did he answer all the questions I asked, he also had the foresight to answer additional questions before the customer even asked. I can rely on his ability to come up with solutions to problems that I encounter whenever the need arises.

Brett Begani, Technical Sales Manager, GHA Technologies

Malachi produces great work every time we use his services. He is on time, on budget and provides creative software solutions to solve the problems he is asked to address. He is my first call for Software Engineering Services.

Douglas Naimo, President, Triggerfinger Software

Malachi entered the program toward the end to help complete the bug fixing phase. He came up to speed on the architecture and code base very quickly and was able to be extremely productive. He built excellent relationships with the team and other's respected his knowledge. Malachi was key to the timely completion of the project.

George Borden, Manager, Systems and Services Group, Sharp Electronics Corporation USA

Malachi is an enthusiastic developer who delights in finding innovative ways to improve upon designs and write new code. Temporal Wave was the second time I employed him, this time in a role which required a lot of self-motivation and drive, working on standalone projects that required him to come up with solutions on his own as much as possible, while fitting in with our small development team at Temporal Wave.

Jim Idle, Founder, Temporal Wave L.L.C.

Malachi was one of the first developers I employed at jBASE Software when we expanded our US operations. We were looking for people with excellent Java skills who could help us expand our flagship database product using the latest technologies. I found Malachi able to keep pace with all the latest developments, filter out the good from the bad and work out how to use them to our advantage with the product. Malachi is a really solid Java programmer!
