Awesome! Please contact me with some details about your project and we'll take it from there!
How much will it cost me?
I can't answer that before I know a thing or two about the project. Send me some info and I'll give you an estimate. I'm sensible and flexible.
And how long will it take?
It depends on the amount & type of music you need, as well as my current workload. It is wise to plan ahead and consider music early on in your project's lifecycle.

What if I paid you in goods and services?
Sure. I'll take a serving of money upon delivery.
