I worked in IT for 10 years before pursuing my passion for writing about consumer technology. I've been a tech blogger and journalist for the past seven years. My key experience is in Windows and other Microsoft products, devices, and services. But it doesn't stop there.

I'm also well versed in Android, iOS, Mobile, Google, Apple TV, Roku (anything home entertainment-related), and home networking. Anything tech-related I enjoy. I mainly write about technology under my real name but have used the screen name "mysticgeek" in the past.

These is the project I'm working on now:
