"It's easy to feel underpaid and under appreciated in this field because you receive almost no credit and your pay is slim to none also. But with this you have to put into consideration what you are doing for the community. I think the impact your designs have are ultimately worth more than the paycheck in the end. If you enjoy doing what you do best and you provide that small public service by entertaining and informing the community then it's easy to sleep at night."
