1. worked with distinguished brands or organizations in an essential capacity;

2. can show future work in the US in your field, and

3. have one or two of the following: press written about you or your work, awards or high-salary.

If you believe you meet the basic criteria please contact us for a formal conversation. Please have your CV or other summary of your work on hand!
