TESTIMONIALS

Sean Costik

Sean Costik Founder / Projekt, Inc.

Dustin is the most talented developer I’ve had the privilege of working with throughout my 15-year career. He’s as meticulous about the sites he builds as I am about their design — which is why I value his work so highly. Plus, he’s always up for a challenge (which I inevitably throw at him) and he’s never not come through. Simply put… he’s the best.
