"Exposure in this industry is vital. Most of my clients like to see my completed projects almost like a final piece of artwork. It is hard to judge the completed project just from one material type. You need to see the whole picture.

Most of my most successful client projects begin from a seminar that I have conducted. I believe that is because the client will develop an appreciation for a thorough design and facilitation process that they are willing to be patient to get it right the first time."
