“Xander is an amazing game developer! He has a keen eye for details, aesthetics and polish, and is very prolific in all of his projects. He is one of the most passionate people who I have met when it comes to creating games – from design and UI, to tools and pipeline, to coding methods. When discussing both making and playing games (from classic to recent) with Xander, I can’t help but get more excited about our craft. He also keeps up on everything that is going on in the game industry, and is very knowledgeable about new trends and technologies. I’ve enjoyed working with him, hope to do so again, and heartily recommend him!”
“Xander is one of the most hard-working individuals in this industry. He is not afraid of any challenge. He is always willing to do what it takes in order for the team to rapidly iterate & shape the product into something great. His dedication to quality, coupled with his extensive knowledge of games & the roots of design, make him a valuable asset that any team would be lucky to have.”
“This guy is dripping with creativity, and has the technical savvy to match. Xander is a visionary, and I have personally seen him handle the job duties of UI creation, script, and design at the same time, and go on to produce stellar results. If I were to make a game, or movie, it would be an honor to have him involved on it.”
One of Xander’s strongest traits is his entrepreneurial spirit which manifests itself in a variety of good discussions & ideas. He was good at researching competitor products & delivering ideas that highlighted the best aspects of what he thought was needed & also provided a proven solution. He often drew from his own personal experiences on various skunkworks projects which he continues to aggressively pursue. Xander works strongly in process-driven workflows & encourages his direct reports to do the same through our internal toolset for managing tasks & deadlines. He leads by example in this regard & at any time I was able to get the full picture on what was assigned to his people and the amount of progress that had been made. I know Xander will do well in whatever he orients himself to. He’s motivated & well spoken & presents himself very well. I would encourage anyone to check out his website to see how flexible & talented he is.
“I would recommend Xander as a great addition to any team in the field of UI. I found Xander to be very professional and competent in the assignments and responsibilities given to him. His ability to adapt to new situations and apply himself to a variety of challenges make him a valuable team member.”
“Xander’s work on high-profile products speaks for itself. He understands the mechanics of UI and has a good eye for merging its design with aesthetics to make the whole more than the sum of its parts. On our project, he had a good head for organizing and handling massive tasks without getting overwhelmed, stepping through each part of our UI in intelligent order to accommodate iteration and art.”
