I’ve known Pete for most of my life, when he moved back to Saskatchewan, we started doing video work together. I would definitely recommend him. He’s fantastic and great to work with! Pete’s biggest asset is how he treats customers. He always treats them well, they’re always comfortable and he over-delivers. He’s got a great business and I look forward to seeing him succeed in the future.
