Timothy W Macinta's Rate Wizard

You can create an accurate estimate of what my hourly rate would be for a particular project by answering any number of the the questions presented below. As you answer more questions, the rate estimate shown on the left on this page will be refined to give you a smaller range. Once you have answered as many questions as you wish, you can fill out my quick feedback form to request a rate commitment. You may also bookmark any page along the way to save your answers for use later.

Rate estimates are subject to change. You can always get an up-to-date rate estimate by bookmarking the final page after you have answered all the questions that you wish. Returning to that bookmarked page will give you an up-to-date estimate (bookmarking the page will save your answers that led up to that page).
