“Concerning Leigh: As an optimist and a perfectionist Leigh already establishes a precedence for how you will work with him and how he will work with you. It is not an option that leaves much room for discussion or thought. It just essentially very easy to get on with him and to work with him and you wouldn't want to change that anyway.
For me, working with Leigh was like an extension of my thoughts and imagination. He intuitively understands what is required, how to craft it, present it and ultimately consolidate it into that exact special something you want.
One may run the risk of underestimating him in terms of his good humour and unwavering cheer. But that is only because there is a lot more going on that one cannot see. One may be talking or explaining a point, an issue or concept thinking "will he get this?", however, Leigh has already grasped the whole big picture and is beginning to paint it in his minds eye to perfection beyond your expectations - every time.
I am a lucky person to have worked with Leigh because now I know what is possible if a creative possess both immense technical skills and craft to the minutest detail as well as vast ocean of ideas that seem to always be crystal clear and perfectly, well... "beautiful".
Concerning Leigh, I tell you this: Enjoy, I know it will be a pleasure working with him.” October 22, 2010
