What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Initially I communicate with the customer directly, and conduct a "discovery meeting." During this meeting, we discuss our backgrounds, desires, and needs. After the initial meet, Huffy Creative sends a detailed quote and/or agreement letter to outline services offered. Once terms are agreed to, Huffy Creative begins work.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have an Associates of Arts degree, and, most importantly, years of working experience as an General Manager, Advertiser, Art Department Assistant, Photo Editor, Graphic Designer, Mural Painter, and Illustrator.

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently created custom avatars for a professional couple here in Seattle that are starting a business. I have been working with Amazon now for a while now on photo retouching and am hungry for more!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for someone who can meet your creative and professional goals. My favorite clients are the ones that are truly passionate about their project! There are no projects too small, and every relationship is an opportunity for greater success!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
1. What do I really want?
2. What is my timeframe?
3. Do I have any pictures, photo scrap, or reference to provide?
4. What is quality really worth for my business?
5. How am I going to use this?
