I provide limited liability consulting services.

I usually work in my home office in Sedona Arizona but I also enjoy traveling to customer sites. My consulting rate when working remotely is $50/hour or if you would like me to work on-site then my rate is $75/hour plus travel expenses.

I offer a 10% discount for projects that use my standard MASTER SERVICES AGREEMENT and NDA for my consulting services.

Alternatively, I offer a 30% discount for projects using my standard agreement and where all of the software that I write for your project is released under any of the following open source licenses: LGPL v3, GPL v3, AGPL v3, Apache 2, MIT or Eclipse Public License 1.0. The copyright will be in my name for open source work.

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.

I have over 25 years programming experience and my customers have been pleased with both how efficiently I work and the quality of my work.
