Introduction: I'm an architectural designer by day, graphic designer/photographer by night. I love creative projects, but also have a calculated side of myself that enjoys editing (words/images) and spreadsheets. I've taught design software to interior design college students, built my own computers, led design studios, reviewed student work...so there isn't much that I chose to avoid. I'm currently working for a civil engineer/planner as an urban designer, and also doing entitlement and owner's representation. That's backed by almost 10 years of work in architecture firms across the country, from Pittsburgh to Los Angeles. My knowledge of software runs deep and I'm also a LEED certified professional. My thoughts on being a designer: "It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great." -Tom Hanks Every project is unique, and creates a colorful realm of enjoyable work. No monotony. :)

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I typically use Paypal/Venmo for invoicing & payment. I provide a quote for the estimate of work, and whether hourly or fixed-rate I ask for a 10% (refundable) retainer upfront to get the project started.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Establishing scope, deadline and final deliverables are a primary concern. From there I can offer a quote for an estimate of the work to be performed and send an invoice for the retainer.
