Kind Words About My Work

 Rufus  is a passionate and focused worker who isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty and do something outside of his comfort zone. If he doesn’t know how to do something, he will dive into figuring it out. He’s as equally skilled as he is thoughtful, and goes out of his way to accommodate client needs and do the best job he can.
