My talent is helping people with technology. I've always been able to explain technology for the layman not only to improve their understanding but also to show how they can use it to augment their own lives.

Now I am working with individuals, families and small business people through my Family Tech column.

The column appears in the Prince William Today newspaper and online at their website A supplemental website for the column is at

The column also ran from 2009 through 2012 on the News & Messenger before it closed.

I began working in computer stores in the early 80's. I'd been doing that for three years before Steve Jobs watched me demo the Mac on its first day on the market.

After that I spent over ten years selling complex Enterprise software.

I am the author of an e-book, Get Productive Fast with Evernote. Evernote lets you remember everything in your lives; sort of a digital file drawer available on your computer, your phone and your tablet.

And I also have a personal blog.
