I operate with clients from all over the world. Feel free to reach out and we'll figure out if there is an opportunity to work togehter. I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short and straith to the point. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan).
