My normal rate is $35 per hour; however, I also do some projects for a flat rate. Contact me (click on the “Contact” tab above) with the details of your project for a free estimate.

Initial consultation is without charge or obligation.

Whether your project is large or small, I’d love to talk to you about how I can help.
