August 2017: I have accepted a job at Capital One as tech lead/manager of an AI/machine learning team and Master Software Engineer. I am not accepting any independant consulting work at this time.

My consulting rate for working on site is $60/hour plus travel expenses (customer books and pays for my air flights and hotel, I cover my own food and incidental expenses).

I prefer to use my standard MASTER SERVICES AGREEMENT and NDA for my consulting services.

I am also happy to negotiate a custom contract with you. I understand that the simplified terms in my standard MASTER SERVICES AGREEMENT and NDA may not be compatible with your company's requirements.

For longer term projects I do accept remote work projects on a retainer basis with a minimum billing of 5 hours/week. My rates for long term remote projects are negotiable.

I have 30+ years programming experience and my customers have been pleased with both how efficiently I work and the quality of my work.
