What Clients and Colleagues have to say ...

Kam is my go-to collaborative partner for all my biggest ideas.

Kam has that hardest-to-find quality in a software developer: a keen business sense and a nose for what the customer wants and how the customer thinks. In addition to his robust technology solutions and elegant coding style, his business acumen can save projects tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars and months of time lost chasing the wrong path.

Please don't hire Kam for your next project; I need him for mine!

Chris Kutarna

Best Selling Author and GM@neue geo

Several years after our departures from iProperty, Khamsouk remains a loyal and inspiring colleague that truly has his finger on the pulse of emerging web technology.

Kam is business savvy and his input on projects from a marketing, design, development and business perspective demonstrates that his overall view in the digital realm transcends typical programmers.

Having developed numerous large scale Ruby web applications and content management systems, I recommend Kam to anyone after a solid technical lead, Ruby expert and/or front end web developer.  He's a pretty cool guy to have a chat with too.
