    Armando was a true pleasure to work with! We had a packed day of interviews, ridealongs, and walkalongs and he managed it all with technical expertise, professionalism, and a team player attitude. I was able to count on him not only for equipment / gear, but also to make judgment calls on what to film editorially. Even in the most chaotic scenarios, he was in the right place at the right time to capture the most important moments. I would absolutely recommend Armando and hope to work with him again in the future!

    Armando delivered exceptional work, as always. He pitched a stream under breaking news conditions, dug right into the meat of the story, and delivered a knowledgeable, charismatic stream. My go-to guy in D.C.

    Armando is a gem. Our entire staff gets excited when we get to work with him. Always good work and takes requests and direction without hesitation, and best of all he's incredibly passionate about his work.
