By using this site, you agree to and are bound by the FAQ, the Privacy Police and Terms of Service.
A FAQ page, or Frequently Asked Questions page, is a place where you can go to get most questions answered. As with any website, always check the FAQ first before reaching out and asking questions, as there is a good chance that your question has already been answered and is displayed in the FAQ page.
Consequently, if you have a good question that is not answered here already, feel free to reach out and contact me and I may consider putting it here on the FAQ.
*The hourly billing rate is subject to change at any time without notice*
The current hourly rate for service is:
All services performed are due and billed immediately after services are rendered.
All website, graphic, video production, or other type of project work will require a 50% down payment of the total costs or estimated total costs before any work is started. Then, the remainder balance is due upon completion of the work. Any bills not payed in full within 30 days may incur late penalties and additional fees.
Any bills not paid in full within 60 days may be subject to a collection agency and collection fees, in addition to your account being closed and deleted permanently. Any sites and data that is deleted is non-recoverable and is permanent.
Yes, you will be charged a minimum of one hour for all on-site services, and a minimum of 1/4 hour for all other type of work.
We bill per hour for most projects that are not assigned to a set-fee.
On-site appointments are billed starting at a one hour minimum, and then I bill in quarter-hour increments, rounding up to the next hour. For example, a 20 minute on-site appointment will be billed at 1 hour. A 65 minute on-site appointment will be billed at 1.25 hours.
Remote-controlled sessions as well as other work, is billed to the next quarter-hour. For example, a 20 minute remote-controlled session will be billed at 0.5 hours. A 65 minute remote-controlled session will be billed at 1.25 hours.
However, for some projects like websites, a flat-fee will be charged. Reach out and ask about having a custom website created for you.
It depends on where you live. I do charge for traveling if you are located outside of the local service area, as I charge an extra $1 per mile from Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, going only one direction, per appointment. Contact me for arrangements for travel outside of Oahu.
The local service area is anywhere from Kaneohe to Hawaii Kai to Honolulu. Basically, anything northerly of the H3 freeway is outside of the local service area.
I will give you an appointment window.
I will give you a rough estimate of what time I think I might be there. Then, subtract an hour and add an hour. That is your two-hour time block window for your appointment. I will do my best to be there as close to that time as possible, however, I have other clients that I’m constantly driving around to, and due to the nature of this work, sometimes appointment times can go on longer than expected, or sometime shorter than expected. I really appreciate your flexibility with this. Mahalo.
For example, if there is a 2pm appointment time slot available for you, I will try to be there around 2pm. But, you can expect me as early as 1pm or as late as 3pm.
I come to you at your home or your work, or perhaps we can meet at a coffee shop or something like that. After you make contact with me, I will schedule an appointment time and place with you.
But, if you need quick service, I do offer emergency, same-day and next-day service, if you really need it fixed fast.
Yes! If you have a real bad problem that needs to be fixed really quickly, I can provide a quick result.
Same-Day 9am to 8pm Emergency Service:
Add $150 to your bill.
Same-Day 8pm to 9am Emergency Service:
Add $300 to your bill.
Yes. If you received an estimate or a proposal from me, the price listed is valid for 60 days from the date of receipt.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

For users that register on my website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
