Solving problems that require innovative thinking backed by a diverse range of technical skills and years of experience.
Developed an industry leading (proven in tests), custom built, object oriented PHP heuristic solution to the mTSP (Multiple Travelling Salesman Problem) using a hybrid ACO (Ant Colony Optimization) that incorporates entirely new and unique optimization algorithms.
It's not often you find an experienced programmer with a cum laude double major in applied math and math to build a complex vehicle routing solution that works in the real world from scratch.
Subsequent to this article, I have shown that my hybrid ACO solution produces better results than existing leaders in this field.
Developed an online sports management tool for use in schools, universities and other organizations looking to leverage the Internet to improve communications with parents and students, and reduce administrative work - based on Drupal.
It's not often you find a consultant who actually wrote the book on a technology. I should know because I wrote the book on PHP and Drupal. Learn more by checking out my list of published books.
Consulting rates & options
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, I provide development, business, marketing, analysis and strategy consulting globally.
My standard consulting rates run between $125 and $300 per hour, and are negotiable depending on the requirements of the project.
I love working on interesting startup projects and have contributed to many, in various capacities. For the right projects, I am happy to consider a reduced hourly rate in consideration of a performance bonus or equity.
- Basic retainer: for infrequent ongoing work, I can be contracted on to a basic retainer basis, which ensures that I am on-call and will work on your projects at my nearest availability
- Premium retainer: for regular ongoing work, clients use me on a premium retainer basis, which ensures that precedence is given to your projects and that I dedicate more time to meeting your needs
- Per project: if you're only going to need my input every so often, you are welcome to contact me and set up a per project agreement at a specified hourly rate (depending on the complexity and amount of work)
