Switching through multiple "primary" phones for testing

IxDA Designers in Tennessee?

Are there any IA/IX/UX Designers on this list located in Tennessee? Preferably the Nashville area, but not necessary. I wanted to sit down with an actual designer to get face to face insight into this profession. My treat, you pick the restaurant.
