Support

What is support? Support is your story and I will help you find your story and be more efficient executing it. I’ve done it for Scholastic, Chef Roble´, American Lawyer Media & Jason Fry, Technology Reporter @ The Wall Street Journal.

Pre-Sales

Not sure which device to get or what software package will suit you best? I know the in’s and out’s of everything Apple and can help you decide what to get. I did it for Jimmy Dore, Integrated Ideas, Real Recording & Source Media

Rollout

Want to equip your staff with iPads? I can configure them properly so that your sales people are free to do what matters to your bottom line and your data stays secure. I did it for Restoration Hardware.

My Policies

Work is performed on a best-effort basis. Charges are based on time spent, not on results.
I am not a product dealer. I can and will recommend specific products and reputable dealers at your request.
I will acquire products for established clients on request. I do not mark them up. I require immediate reimbursement for my out-of-pocket expenses, prepayment, or payment by you direct to the dealer. My standard hourly rate applies for this service. I will provide you a copy of the dealer invoice. Warranty, product repair, and product replacement are the responsibility of the manufacturer and dealer.
I don’t leave my work partially done just to keep a strict time schedule. I finish necessary work at my current appointment before proceeding to the next. For that reason appointment times are approximate.
I take pride in my expertise and service. If there is a problem with my service, you can expect me to make it right.
Product names mentioned in this web site are registered trademarks of the respective manufacturers and developers of those products.
Opinions and recommendations contained in this web site my own.
