We Talk

The first order of business is to learn about you. We review your resume and schedule an initial phone call, where we try to understand your background and the kind of project you want to work on.

We Design

Based on your professional experience, preference, and availability, we draft a few ideas you can engage in.

You Choose

After you choose your project, we craft the details of the program — and we’ll be there to track and monitor the program, while telling your story and experience.
