I've had the pleasure of working with Patrick on a project for the USAF's Air Mobility Command. While I can recommend him for a number of reasons from his skills as a UI developer to his ability to make the team better, the one thing I felt most compelled to mention is his work ethic.

Patrick is an adept UI/UX designer who is capable of focusing on many simultaneous tasks, even in the face of rapidly evolving requirements and technological shifts. He is a great team player and has been crucial to our scrum team in working with our end customer's functional analysts and designers to ensure that our product is in alignment with their vision.

Scott Elingburg / QA Engineer
Gigabug was founded in late 2001 with the intent to bring the best of the web and hosting to my local community, this private business does Hosting and Web Design for various customers, with an eye on keeping costs low. This all started while I was still in the U.S. Army as an Airborne Infantryman (1998-2006) and having "some" skills to create my Company's first website, then others needed websites and so it began and “Gigabug” was created as my online design persona. In 2006 I moved to Sharm el Sheikh Egypt and started full-time work as a freelancer, and was picked up as the IT Manager and Director of Digital Operations for the largest casino in the Middle East, all the while continually creating products as a side job. To this day, I have continued to create state of the art websites for DoD, other Government Agencies, and Private Companies. I am now doing applications development and complete User Interface, User Experience Design and Development for the DoD as a contractor.
