'Brian is an absolute gem of a find - he has a phenomenal work ethic, a natural eye, and an insatiable appetite for improvement. He also has the best attitude in the field, suffers through biting insects and scalding sun with a broad smile and a song on his lips. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.'
