This is to give you an idea of my rates.

Hourly Rates

Fixed Price

Established on a case-by-case basis. Please note that there will be a great degree of variation depending on the type of work you need.

Whether a project works better as a fixed price or as an hourly rate, will be established when we discuss the work you would like me to do. No project will begin without a discussion (in person or via Zoom) and an agreement that we are both happy.


My Story

A few things about me 

I was born and raised in Hungary, spent half of my adolescence in Algeria, and moved to the US to attend graduate school for political science. My first degree was an MA in French. My second was an MA in American Studies. Only then did I switch to political science. When I am not doing research or writing, I devotedly rescue cats and dogs. Blessedly, I am partnered with someone who is on board with having lots of animals live with us.
