Payment Terms
*I will NOT start work until escrow has been funded. If you select my proposal and do not fund escrow, your project (and deadline) are put on hold until this has happened. This is a nonflexible policy.*

I am available to work on projects on a continual basis. I prefer using Elance escrow with funds added at the beginning of a project and am happy to accept full payment when the client is completely satisfied with my work. Once payment is received final hires/reproducible files will be provided to the client or sent to the appropriate vendor. Willing to do ghostwriting.

For research projects and projects with budgets larger than $300 total, our company requires a 50% deposit paid at the beginning, which allows us to begin your project!
