All for Good hired Kelvin to review and make several enhancements to our current Solr based search platform. I thoroughly vetted Kelvin's skills before deciding to work with him so I was not surprised by his expert level knowledge of Solr (especially geospatial search) and the general technical knowledge that he brought to the project.

What was a pleasant surprise is how incredibly thorough, committed, and full of positive energy he is. Before wrapping up his work with us he made sure to fully document everything he had done and made sure we all were completely up to speed on it. He has outstanding technical skills, a great attitude, and excellent communication skills. Nice guy too. I highly recommend Kelvin.
