My Logo

I was looking for the perfect image that exemplifies  my approach to new and/or existing  business. 

My tag line:  It Starts With A Conversation.

One weekend morning, the sun was shining through my kitchen window, and I noticed some steam coming off my coffee cup.  It was such an inviting site, that I quickly took a few pictures from  different angles. I was able to get a great picture of the steam coming off the coffee cup and a great picture of the coffee cup, the problem, they were   on separate images.  I could easily fix that.  Loading up all my photos to Photoshop, and taking parts of several pictures, I created what I wanted...


For me, the perfect Cup of Steaming Coffee to start the conversation.


This has been used on my website and business cards.
