Michael Smith, President and Owner of Michael Smith Architects, is a goTasker member with over 22 years of residential and commercial design experience in the tristate area.

“I think there’s going to be a new comfort level with video technology,” he said. “In-person meetings will still have their place, of course, but I think a lot of businesses in our industry are going to become more efficient by taking things online.”
