Thank you for introducing yourself. I think it would be nice if other cohousing 
professionals introduced themselves. Self-promotion is irritating but 
introductions and explanations are helpful and (usually?) welcome. 

For example, I’ve seen “Schemata Workshop” float by on the list without really 
understanding that it was related to cohousing. I recognized "Grace Kim” but 
not on the context of an architectural office with a focus on cohousing.

And professionals, please put your location in your signature line. I think 
because we are posting online, it all seems close by, that it doesn’t matter 
where we are. But knowing geographic location does help — give us at least a 
state! And then explain the areas across which you work.
