How I Can Help You
If you're planning on purchasing a new Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, iPhone, or iPad, pre-purchase consulting with me can be helpful to choose the hardware and software that best meets your needs. I can help you determine how best to make the transition to Apple's new and not so new models, and which software would suit your needs best.

I can help you set up your new Mac and peripheral devices (printer, scanner, iPhone/iPod/iPad, hard drive, digital camera, etc.), build a network for your home or office, and get you online via cable, dial-up, wireless – you name it. I provide basic introduction, customizing and optimizing your system, organizing your files, installing applications, and troubleshooting – and I’ll teach you loads of tips, techniques and shortcuts to make using your Mac more productive and enjoyable.

My goal is to help you get comfortable with the best computer platform in the world – OS X! As a feature-rich computer system, it can get intimidating. This is where I come in. I will help beginners and intermediate users to get the most of their Macs. It is never too late to learn and I specialize in helping those who may be afraid of new technology but are willing to learn new tricks. Contact me and I will get you started (or help solve a frustrating computer problem) in no time.

I make house calls!
