"At a time when digital techniques can show us almost anything, "The Blair Witch Project" is a reminder that what really scares us is the stuff we can't see. The noise in the dark is almost always scarier than what makes the noise in the dark. Any kid can tell you that. Not that he believes it at the time." - Roger Ebert, Film Reviewer

"It is an honor to have known Kristian for over 4 years. Kristian is a very professional marketing executive, with many world-wide contacts. I would highly recommend Kristian."  - Malachy Wienges - Chairman Emeritus at The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

"When Kristian first called about working with the Grammys, we weren't searching for a business partner on our telecast program book. Kristian was persistent, but in an incredibly patient way, allowing us to find a point of comfort in doing business together. Since then, we've produced a number of books together and Kristian and his team have been professional, thoughtful partners throughout. He has immersed himself in our culture and been attentive to the way we operate and our brand image. I'm very pleased with the results we've achieved. - David Konjoyan, VP Creative Services at the Recording Academy (the Grammy's).
