Here is a list (very short and bulleted) of my current priorities in order of highest to least critical. I’d be happy to re-prioritize, just let me know which priority(s) you’d like me to remove or delegate to fit this one in.

  • I appreciate your trust, I am however on tight deadlines for other, high priority projects and don’t feel comfortable committing to anything else at this time.
