I work from a home-office environment and am willing to spend several hours daily with work that is too tedious for those with more than they can chew or with higher goals. Capable of executing exact and efficient work and proficient in the MS Windows environment, I enjoy using my know-how and skills to complete a task.

My repertoire includes workflow analysis, software design and programming, network installation, configuration and administration, DBA, data collation, pre-press data processing and a plethora of computer and user specific tasks as well as hardware maintenance and repair.

I prefer email as a communication platform, but am open to many forms made available by technology. Skype, for example, is an option, but do consider the high cost of data in South Africa.

I deliver promptly and expect prompt remuneration. It really does take longer to fill my account than to empty yours, but if you received what you asked for be fair.
