Some Questions You May Want Answers To...
Below are some questions that I get frequently asked. So, instead of explaining them one by one, I've decided to put them on the website, so you can read them at your convenience and see whether or not we could possibly have a match to work together.
If you have a question that you can't find here, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I know here I should give you a "business-like" email, but all my "business-like" emails get forwarded to my Gmail account, because that's the best and most reliable email client (I believe) on the planet. And I want my email to be rather reliable than business-like.
