A little about myself...

A little about myself...

When I was very young, I had a fascination with pushing buttons. Large, small, red, blue whatever…

In the third grade, I was able to get my hands on this crazy machine called the "Macintosh." I played around with the paint program and was immediately in love. I didn't get my own Mac until 1998 when my father finally caved and bought an Orange iMac for the family. I learned everything about that computer in a week.

After about a month, my computer teacher in school started asking me for help when he was confused and thus began the start of my venture into Mac consulting. Needless to say, I already knew that I was going to be answering peoples' computer questions for a really long time.

While attending the University of Vermont, I had the pleasure of working at Small Dog Electronics in South Burlington as a retail sales associate. During those years, I interacted with every type of Apple user out there.

What really resonated with me was the way that people care about their Macs and other Apple devices as if it's their friend. We truly have relationships with these devices. I think that this dynamic stems from the fact that we are using them to enhance our creative outlets (whether it be music, photography, writing, sharing etc..) to the point where the technology becomes less of a product and more of a lifestyle.

I feel that this is what makes Apple users so passionate about their computers. My goal is to help you build that relationship with your Mac and tailor your digital lifestyle to enhance your creative passions.

Let me push your Mac's buttons so it doesn't end up pushing yours.
