A typical contract is for 1 month of work. I am normally booked 1 to 3 months in advance.

I'm open to shorter contracts, but prefer longer ones. For a shorter contract, we'll divide my monthly rate by the number of days you want, and add a small amount of overhead.

Please note that work will be conducted in accordance with my ethics policy.
