"Doug’s recognition of the need for a service like Idea Architects is a great example of his creative mind at work. If you have an idea, Doug will help you make it happen. I am constantly amazed at his ability to turn my "fuzzy" ideas into clear and practical plans. Working with Doug is truly a stimulating experience. After each conversation with him I am more excited and more energized than ever to make my dream a reality. His years in the publishing and media world have allowed him to make our projects more successful and more saleable, but it is his innovative thinking and personal passion that make working with him an inspiring and gratifying experience."
