Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $16

I have over 30 years in high-profile IT projects, with the last 10 of them in Project Management.

However, with my family's move to Spain in 2013, I have finally been able to publish my first book, "Patch, His Pack, and Dear Old Reg", and now maintain a more balanced lifestyle, working part-time using my freelance IT, photographic and writing skills.

I have more recently written a second book, that is awaiting publication.
