Terms

30-minute Consultation: Free of charge, for the purpose of determining how I can help with your project.

Rate: $150/hr  Design, analysis, and management of optical and mechanical fabrication.

Payment Methods: I accept all forms of payment and my invoicing service offers 6-mo interest-free financing.  In general, work begins once payment has been received for each invoice. However, I can accommodate other terms for large U.S. customers paying by ACH.

Non-disclosure:  I take great care to protect your ideas and the designs I create for you.  I do not disclose your proprietary info to 3rd parties without your permission, nor do I re-use or share proprietary designs.  All of my computers and devices are password-protected.  I use encrypted hard drive backups, which are rotated to a safe deposit box, as well as end-to-end encrypted, private key cloud backups.  My correspondence is over SSL, using a secure LAN, and I use a P3-level shredder to dispose of any sensitive documents.  If an NDA is required by the client, a $500 non-refundable deposit will be charged prior to signing, to be credited towards the first invoice.
