“…you have created projects that blend science and soul in a provocative and compelling way. Combined with your talent and resources, I believe that you are ideally equipped to make your vision manifest and create a truly unique product. I am convinced that there is both a great hunger for the type of material you are developing, as well as a great lack of credible content.
I would be thrilled to participate in any number of ways – be it a consultant, producer and/or host. I look forward to hearing from you about the development of these exciting projects.”
