Hi Chris,

Thanks for holding that tele-seminar the other day. It validated a lot of what I was thinking and got me thinking in a new direction or two. Good stuff!

Merry Christmas - Happy Holidays

Hi Chris,

The blog has been a fun way for me to elaborate on pictures of my work or express my thoughts of design... in some ways it has helped clients to get an understanding of who I am and how I think. I would say that more of my business comes from the parent website of the design group I belong to... ... I've been able to support myself based on the business that site generates for me.

Hi Chris -

I was that you might be able to offer some insight into the design / build side of the profession. I've got extensive experience in an office setting, but I've been considering 'jumping the fence' to the hands-on side of things.

I've started a discussion in the general forum, and would appreciate any information you might be able to give me.
