My vote is for William in LA because I’m from LA and I know how hard it is to try and spend some free time with your kids…for all you Vern Yip fans, catch Vern as a judge on the 2nd season of Design Star airing July 22nd at 10 PM on the HGTV network.  I know this because I work with HGTV.  check out the site  I caught a peek of the 2nd season, and let me tell ya, if you loved the first season, the second season will blow you away! so don’t miss out!.

Crile, from what I read on his company’s site, was one of the first developers to earn the Microsoft Solution Developer (MCSD) certificate, with a number of active company sites to his credit. And judging from the videos, he could use the design help 😉 (couldn’t we all?)

If you want to get a sense of the need, you really have to watch the videos… the initial photos don’t do justice to the design needs out there! 😉
