I have worked for Father Pavone, MEV on two separate internships, one after graduating high-school, and the other, on a summer break between college terms. In total, I have spent more than a year working for him, in multiple positions throughout the company, some of which I was assigned a manager to work under, and others, I was given to report directly to him. Father Pavone is an incredibly driven individual, that will work until a job is complete and fulfills its original purpose beyond initial expectations. As such, working for him was an incredible pleasure and example for myself, and gave me purpose in my work.
