If you have any questions or need further clarification please feel free to contact me via e-mail at: 

In the event that you email me and I don’t reply within 24 hours, it is most likely because I didn’t get your email. Please check the address and email me again. If for some reason you have to email me any documents, please be kind and write me a note too and don’t just send your document making the assumption that I will read it. Don’t forget the old axiom,  people do business with people they like, with that in mind, make yourself likable and  you might be surprised by what people will do for you.
