I generally work six days a week, 10-12 hours a day, and I do my best work from 9am-9pm, though I typically work later hours than this. My rates are variable, but my average hourly rate for most technical work is $125/hr. I do financial and business consulting for $200/hr. I can work on smaller projects with quick turn around. I prefer to charge by the project, so my hourly rate varies depending upon complexity and time, and client needs. I prefer to communicate via email.
