"Ash is the consummate professional. Not only is his work of a very high standard but his attitude on set is only comparable to his knowledge.
I have worked with Ash on a number of occasions and have always found him to give 100%. He works well with other heads of department and is good at working to schedule.
In pre-production he offers solutions to problems before they have even been mentioned and is always ready to accept alternative suggestions. I wouldn't hesitate to put Ash forward to any production."
