**AVAILABLE FROM LATE APRIL 2021** I am open to available jobs up to 35 hours per week. I prefer longer-term contracts, but am open to shorter projects as well.
I am currently based in the U.S., but lived and worked in Germany for 5 years. I am used to working with clients across multiple time zones. I frequently use Zoom or other conference calls for meetings and communication.
