I am looking for a php MySQL consultant to help me with a client project
that my marketing/web development company is working for.  The client
has agreed to pay well for hours worked in helping develop the coding.  

All the graphics design and website coding is done, you do not need to
worry about any of this.  We basically now need to pull information from
the client's main SQL database into the body of the pages to ensure that
they are dynamic.  We even have old code from the current website that
you can look at when integrating the php into this new website.  There
