    This letter is to Alfonse. I have an idea that could revolutionize sustainable technologies. I need assistance in building a prototype, so what I’m asking for are partners. I must be able to trust them before presenting them my idea. I am a student at SFCC. I have a degree in fine arts and currently working on a film production degree. I have an LLC and have delayed establishment due to the economic down turn. I have gone through other options that had gone awry. I can be contacted at: My mobile is 505 469-8687
