He's hands-on, has no ego, is extremely empathetic and collaborative and keeps projects & initiatives moving forward. He's easy to work with and has unique experience with design, marketing and business strategy; executing on an array of deliverables for web, brand, print, content and even coding. Simply put, people really like him as a person and trust him as a partner. Sol always comes through, does what he says he'll do, isn't afraid to get his hands dirty, has high integrity and leads by example.

I worked closely with Sol for several years. Under Sol and his talented people, Riviera grew over 200% in less than five years. I was amazed how Sol could conceptualize just what the market wanted and then turn it into a reality. He is extremely detail oriented, patient, and unrelenting - but best of all, he gets things done! Sol is especially great with people and excels in a team environment. Any company that needs wildly creative talent and wants their brands to become world class would be very wise to have Sol on their team.

I had the pleasure of working with Sol as a freelance artist for Riviera Skateboards a few years ago. Right from the start, I knew he was going to be a great client to work for. He is extremely personable, passionate, and most of all, creative. He had a clear vision of what he was looking for, but still allowed me to have artistic freedom, which is rare! The brand Riviera Skateboards was an eclectic mix but overall cohesive, which was because of Sol’s commitment and attention to detail. He has an incredibly strong creative mind and determined to help brands succeed. I hope to have the chance to work with him again in the future.

Sol's well-rounded experience, skill-set and fluency in business and design language make equally effective in an executive role as in he is in a creative role. His attention to detail, work ethic and passion are peerless. Moreover, his constant drive to learn new methods and grow keeps him formidable in the ever changing new media/digital landscape. He's truly one-of-a-kind. Not to mention, his huge heart, laughter and loving character make him fun to be around and a crucial part of any team. I welcome the chance to work with him again in the future.
