"He is so utterly passionate about creating outstanding work, and that passion seems to pour right out of his email and into your cup until suddenly you're drinking whatever Kool-Aid he's serving that day. It's impossible to close those emails without feeling excited about what you're going to write. Over the time that I've worked with him, I've watched him carefully build a community that truly meets its members needs. He's got a good knack for cultivating content that's relevant and timely. "
"Every project that we worked on together Nick went above and beyond a community manager and acted as an editor, art director, and creative director with confidence and expertise. Not only does he get stuff done but he makes sure that stuff is creative, beautiful, and professional. Nick is persistent, bold, and confident in his communications and has the unique ability to capitalize on people's uniqueness while simultaneously challenging them to consistently create better work."
"When I first met Nick, I wanted to know more about him. He emits an uplifting and pleasant energy that’s quite infectious. As I got to know him better I learned that he’s inherently inquisitive, and is a true egalitarian. This shows in his work, because he has a natural understanding of people. His empathy of others affords him the scaffolding to share words and images in a way that is relatable to people. His work is casual rather than contrived. He also has personality, which he doesn’t disguise. That’s his authenticity shining through."
"I've always admired his ability to strike a balance between giving his writers creative freedom and aligning their collective output with his vision. He is organized, generous, consistently enthused about his work, and eager to collaboratively solve problems. Nick brings out and nurtures the strengths of others. Any team is lucky to have him."
"Nick Mendez is awesome! He is an excellent communicator, self-directed, and extremely savvy with social media strategy."
"In his short-term position here Nick has made some valuable contributions to our long-term communications processes and planning. He's been a terrific member of our team. I highly recommend him."
"Nick is an energetic, creative and passionate teammate. He has an original and imaginative approach to creating concepts and writing content. In the workplace, his dedication to his peers is unwavering."
