“I have had the pleasure of working with Zachary Misko during the film production of Top Recruiter, The Competition Miami Reality Show. Zachary was a key supporter in making this event come to fruition. He is a visionary and is always a pleasure to be around. This was an enormous production in its own right and Zachary was there always with great ideas and advice. During the brainstorming stage Zachary was consistently honest and thorough in his thoughts, which in turn, added clarity to the most difficult decisions. His performance before, during and after production has been exceptional. His professionalism should be in a text book or seminar, Simply Stellar."
