Employing Me

It's easy, just contact me by e-mail and we can discuss what your needs are.

What I charge depends on the project, the time available for preparation, the amount of travel etc.

I have a variable daily rate, but if I am away from home you will also have to cover the costs of travel (taxis, flights etc), hotel accommodation to a good standard and a per diem for incidental expenditures.

Projects, courses and seminars

I am looking for interesting and challenging projects to work on. I can offer courses and seminars in many areas: see more here.


I took all the photographs on this website during my project work in different countries.
