These are a few of the most obvious services I offer. If you need something else, ask. If I’m not the right person, I may be able to recommend someone who is.
Services may be available on-site or remote. For one-off projects or on an ongoing basis.
I expect you can find someone who seems cheaper, although my rates are fair.
I expect you can find someone with more experience in some specific skill, although I’m not too shabby.
But you won’t find anyone who’s a better bet. Who has the breadth of skills, depth of experience, and record of success I can offer you.
Think of me as your techie annex. A pro you can rely on now. And next time a need arises.
So tell me what you need.
