Duane brings out the best in his guests

I’ve interacted with Duane from two different angles. First as the coordinator of the Craft Pays Me mini series. And more recently as a guest. Not to mention my time as a listener of Art Pays Me. Duane has a quiet way about him, he brings out the best in his guests. Lovely to work with, and speak with.
