    Sustainable Computing

    (21 reviews)

    Clients particularly appreciate my patience and my gentle and intuitive approach to computing. I translate jargon and help you understand how your Mac communicates with you, and our time together is always a learning experience. I love the opportunities to learn from each other, reach you at your level, and reduce frustration through logic and perseverance.

    Digital Buddha

    (9 reviews)

    How you incorporate - or choose to exclude - digital technology in your daily life heavily determines your level of productivity, both personally and professionally. Just like your relationship with your physical body and mind, your relationship to technology is one that requires management and discipline. In many cases, the best approach is one of simplification, with a focus on tighter organization and management of fewer tools, not more stuff to learn or buy. With an unhealthy relationship to technology, your inbox is a source of constant dread and frustration. You have learned to ignore or "just delete" constant annoyances like error message windows and unwanted email. You spend more time trying to navigate and locate things on your home computer than you do getting actual tasks completed. You have many software applications installed on your PC that you have never, ever used, and many of them you don't even know what they are meant to do. You have spent over $2,000 on digital technology in the past 12-18 months but could not easily identify any return on that investment, let alone recoup. *** If your home computer or laptop does not actively support and enhance your life in at least five different ways, your investment is being wasted.*** What I love most about this job is sharing in the joy and satisfaction my clients express when we eliminate or resolve an ongoing source of frustration or inefficiency within their digital realm.

    Joel K.

    (3 reviews)

    I think one of the things that separates me from most is that I really listen to - and care about - my clients. I try to be the best at what I do, providing the highest levels of effort, expertise, and personal attention, based upon each client's individual needs and preferences. If you come to me with a request that I don't feel sufficiently qualified to help you with, I let you know ... I won't accept an assignment from you if I don't think I can provide the level of assistance you require. Likewise, please don't feel compelled or obligated to work with me - or with anyone else - unless you feel it's a good fit for you. Thank you for your interest ... I look forward to working with you! Joel The greatest satisfaction comes from clients who let me know how pleased they are with my work, and who share that message with others via the reviews they write about me on sites such as Yelp and Google.
