I will gladly make use of Guru's Escrow Pay Services. If utilizing Escrow Pay Services, we can decide on an agreed amount to be deposited at the start of a project and it is expected to be released upon the first deliverable (part specified in contract - to show our ability to get the job accomplished).
E-mail contact is preferable, yet phone conferences can be set by appointment.
Working hours are normally between 9 and 5 CST. Other hours and weekends can be arranged.
