If you're an individual or a small enterprise, you can put me under contract for $30 an hour, and I'll take care of the government stuff (taxes and all). I give preference to projects involving natural and alternative environmentally-aware building and construction, general ecological concerns, economic and social justice, and that sort of thing.

If you want to arrange a flat-fee project—whether it's a new site from the ground up, a redesign of your existing site, ongoing maintenance—we can hammer something out. I'll talk barter, too, if that's one of your languages.
