What makes you “So Cool”?

Well, I'm a Great Dane. That means I'm great, right? (Great = Cool) So I am a So Cool Dane! Plus, I am just so handsome. I love coming to the office every day! I demand daily walks and everyone in the office gets to pet me! I might even love that cat one day!

If you were going to be stranded on a deserted island – what would be in your castaway kit?

What makes you “So Cool”?

My Philosophy: It is a pleasure working with and building the clients vision. With all the dead lines and last minute changes or add ons in this industry you have to remain COOL and not get overwhelmed! There is usually a suitable solution to every challenge we come across, as long as the client knows you are trying and you can remain creative, it will all end up So Cool! Some people call us "Event Architects", I prefer "Dream Builders".
