Correspondence and screening: I do not have an assistant and I handle all of my own correspondence - the only person who will see your information is me. Your screening information will be deleted once I have verified you. My default email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you require more discretion, I have an unpublished email addresses that does not contain any information connected to my website or online presence. If you prefer to correspond with that address, please let me know on the booking form.
Phone: I don't answer phone calls unless we've agreed to speak in advance at a specific time. I will never contact you by phone (either by calling or texting) unless we have previously agreed on a specific time to do so. My voicemail has no personal greeting, so if anyone else in your life found my number and were to call it, there would be no identifying information.
If we bump into each other in public: I am a very private person who highly appreciates discretion in all things; please do not approach me if you see me in public. I could be with friends or family and it could create an uncomfortable situation for all of us. Even if I look like I am alone, I may not be. If I see you in public, I will never approach you or otherwise make it known that we are acquainted, even if you appear to be alone at the time, for the very same reasons. Thank you for understanding.
I prefer to be contacted via email:
I have a full life where discretion is a must.
As such, I am far more easily able to check emails than text message.
If your message is respectful (both of my time and in content) and reasonable, I generally reply either that business day or the next. I am rarely able to reply on weekends.
After we are acquainted, I am happy to respond to text messages when I am able to do so.
