To whom it may concern

It gives me very great pleasure to provide a reference for Nisar Keshvani.

I first met Nisar in February 1998 when he enrolled in my class “Introduction to Multimedia Technology” (QUT, AAB818). He achieved a High Distinction in this difficult unit and I was very pleased when he subsequently accepted my invitation to work on fineArt forum, an art & technology e-zine which I edited from 1992-1999. Since June 1998 he has made a number of contributions to this publication as editor of our “Opportunities” and “Stuff” sections and written industry reviews. In December 1999 he took over as Editor of the magazine.



Nisar’s combination of intelligence and insight with enthusiasm and diligence mark him out as an exceptional worker. His commitment to the many projects that he has been involved with ... have enabled him to make a significant contribution.



Nisar’s combination of intelligence and insight with enthusiasm and diligence mark him out as an exceptional worker. His commitment to the many projects that he has been involved with since I have known him have enabled him to make a significant contribution.

As you will see from his resume this has been rewarded by a continuing string of accolades and awards. He is strongly self-motivated, shows exceptional initiative and can quickly adapt to often complex circumstances.

He is able to accept high levels of responsibility and I have been able to delegate complicated tasks to him with complete confidence. He is able to work unsupervised and has proven capabilities in supervising and training others. He has a positive attitude and a personable demeanour which enable him to work well as either a member or the leader of a group.

As the Editor of fineArt forum he has been successful in obtaining grant income for this non-profit magazine and has initiated many challenging projects. He has developed and improved administrative procedures and documentation. This is the first time our international e-zine has been edited by a Singaporean journalist I am particularly excited by his plans to extend fineArt forum’s network into the growing Asia Pacific region.

I wish Nisar every success in his future endeavours and have no reservations in recommending him to prospective employers. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
