I had the pleasure of working with John during his tenure at American Express.

During his time at American Express, John consistently demonstrated a high level of technical skill and an unwavering work ethic. He was responsible for the development and maintenance of multiple web applications and email campaigns, and his work was consistently of the highest quality.

John is an excellent team player who is always willing to collaborate with others and share his expertise. He is a great communicator who is able to clearly explain technical concepts to non-technical team members, and he has a strong attention to detail that ensures that projects are completed accurately and on time.

He is a dedicated and talented developer with a wealth of experience and expertise, and he brings a positive attitude and a strong work ethic to all of his projects.

Stevens Institute of Technology

Michael Schinelli

Assistant Vice President for Marketing and Communications
Stevens Institute of Technology – Hoboken, NJ

“John Trail was contracted in 2010 to develop the next generation University News site for Stevens Institute of Technology. John Trail worked with our news staff and internal design team to realize our vision with incredible accuracy and added value. This entailed not only site design in Drupal, a new platform to Stevens, but an entire CMS with highly tailored interfaces that met our complex content management needs. John’s work became the foundation for a major university web overhaul project begun in 2011 – a project that John contributed to significantly through extensive consultation and research.

I highly recommend John Trail for his outstanding technical leadership and customer-centric partnership.”

Second Melody

Michael Graham

Second Melody, LLC – Chester, NJ

“It has been my pleasure to work with John Trail on various projects for which he has acted as, not only a third party vendor for our company, but first and foremost as a part of our team. It is important to us to find the right strategic partners. People that are not only experts in their respective fields but also, people we can trust to represent Second Melody not only through their level of work, but also through their personality and work ethic. We have found that in John, and he has been a valuable asset to us while getting our company off the ground.

John’s skill-set is impressive, in that he is able to combine both development and programming skills, with a comprehensive knowledge of design and layout. As a Creative Director, it is a luxury to work with a developer that understands the form and function of a layout and not just how to write and implement code. John’s ability to adapt his expertise and back-end programming knowledge to jobs that are still in the conceptual stages allow us to easily transition to the creative and development process without hesitation and with the necessary input we need to deliver exactly what our clients are looking for. John also serves as a wealth of knowledge for us and coming up with ideas to pitch to clients because he knows the field so very well.

I would highly recommend John, I have no doubt that he would bring great value as a member of your team.”
