"While Nicolai was working with us I got the following note form one of our not-for-profit clients: "After spending several hours with your team this morning, I just wanted to thank you for your help with this project. We've really enjoyed working with Nicolai. He's been very professional - and patient - which are both important qualities in our world". In addition to this nice external review I can add that Nicolai has been one of the most dedicated and talented interns we have had at Zago."
