A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Isaac:

  • While working with Strack as part of a "start-up" design/techology team at Adobe, I was highly impressed with his technical expertise, ability to articulate solutions to the less tech-savvy, and consistently positive attitude. He's always up for a challenge and pushes everyone around him to think more, question more, innovate more. He's a great collaborator, teacher, and friend, and a tremendous asset to any team.
  • Isaac is a driving force at Adobe. Besides his normal duties he volunteers his time for a number of community initiatives. He is very committed to education and works relentlessly to make sure those inside and outside the company receive the information and education they need to be effective. In addition to training our customers, Isaac goes the extra mile and takes time to train those inside the company on our own products. In addition to work related training, Isaac volunteers with a number of outside groups such as STEM / STEAM, FIRST robotics, and WIT to share technology education to the community. Isaac is always willing to donate his time, talents, and energies to share his knowledge with others. I've worked with Isaac on a number of initiatives. He is well organized and detail oriented. He knows how to effectively share leadership while still making sure everything gets done and everyone has fun. Working with Isaac is a blast.
