Remote (with SMART Board) vs. Face to Face Design Sessions

I'm working with a team based in another location.  The product owner and I are trying to bring down one of the developers down for a collaborative design session.  We're at an important juncture and really need to hammer out some important design questions.  This developer has a focus on UI development and a rich background in human factors.

In January, I went up for a week to work with him and then then product owner.  We spent most of the week in a conference room with a whiteboard and were extremely productive since we played well off each other.

Design Thinking Portfolio

I am caught up in the NDA and out dated portolfio dilemma.  I am not able to show my best work or recent work because of non-disclosure agreements or the fact that things have been re-designed or are just not current.

I was wonerding if it would be acceptable to create new deliverables.  I do not have any paid mobile experience, so I wanted to start with that.

Are employer's more interested in the way I think, rather than what I have been paid to do in the past?
