What my clients say about me…
Nick’s work was excellent, exceeding my expectations. He quickly grasped the objective of the project, provided a foundational marketing research template, suggested insightful consumer questions, executed the research in a timely fashion achieving my desired deadline, and provided an outstanding analysis and report of the results. I found him to be bright, flexible, and professional. He will be my first “go to” for market research. I highly recommend him!

I highly recommend working with Nick on survey projects. He is very knowledgeable of the panels out there and the best way to get the data you want within budget. Nick is very communicative and helpful. He really wants to make sure to deliver the final data you need.
Nick and his team are very professional, knowledgeable about what they are doing, and they make sure they reach your goals. Very happy with them and will definitely work with them more in the future.

Nick is not only a skilled analyst and data visualization expert, but an insightful thinking partner in all aspects of the survey development and deployment process. We are continuing our work with him as we collect and analyze more data and strategize how to communicate it to our clients. I highly recommend him.
