    Jeff, didn't finished the job. Played for time and until now I received nothing but excuses and some weird XLS tables. I hired this man in a middle of July (2013). He sent a horrible copy+past press release that he supposed to send about 3 months ago as a bonus to all our deal. He received the payment as a bonus and don't want to refund me. I lost my money ($500) and don't have any results. DEFINITELY NOT RECOMMEND TO HIRE THIS GUY!
