Web development ninja - PHP / MySQL & HTML / CSS / JavaScript (berkeley north / hills)

Date: 2010-11-30, 1:29PM PST

I'm a programmer at heart and thrive on web development. Give me a picture of what you want and I'll bring it life, or explain roughly and we'll develop iteratively together in an agile manner ;)

I'm unavailable Nov 13th-Dec 5th and Dec 18th-26th, but have room between and lots of room after. Would love to hear from you and I'll response soon as I return!

Seeking (Roughly as follows)
* 5-20 hours a week (Where I give 200% focus)
* $100-150/hr
** I work C2C so no need for payroll taxes, benefits, etc.
** Hourly rate depends on availability, project stability, etc
* 6-24 month agreement to work together
** Guaranteed 2 weeks notice when need to cancel
* Telecommuting with online/communication hours of 10am-1pm
** Meeting face to face initially is okay to get to know each other, but I prefer remote work in general as we move forward together
* 2 months off annually (again, no pay here needed since I work C2C)
* Cash only, I'm not looking for equity

* I prefer to work on public facing pages, so I have something to show for it when I'm done ;)
* Innovative web sites get me excited
