As I read through the comments on this topic, I think that would really help in connecting the parties would be the answers to the next questions.
1. Are you interested in only in person engagements OR Are virtual meetings via google hangouts or skype an option?
2. Are there windows of days and times that work for you? What time zone are those times in?
I think it would be very helpful to all future readers of this topic [@mention:476716727638518044] if you could edit your original post to include the above questions.
