A Little About Me…

Jim MitchellBased in Huntington Beach, California — a.k.a. “Surf City, U.S.A.” — I started my career like many Mac-using folk do — as a graphic design artist.

It all began with a Mac SE/30 and a lot of love for that little machine. It was those early years using PageMaker, Freehand and Photoshop where I learned the importance of keeping a system in tip-top shape.

With more than 20 years of systems admin experience under my belt, my ongoing efforts help keep the Macs of others running smoothly and efficiently.

Focusing on servicing Mac OS X systems, I saw the need for a simple, yet effective tool for Mac system administrators that would let them quickly address routine maintenance issues.

This ultimately led to the development of Yasu (Yet another system utility), which is still pretty popular with both system administrators and regular users.

For my day gig, I work as a Salesforce.com administrator & developer for the top educational products company in Southern California. I also do Microsoft SQL database administration and FileMaker development.

I’m married to an awesome woman who I’d be completely lost without, and have 3 pretty cool kids that I’m really proud of. In my spare time, I like to tinker with WordPress themes, play music, and spend time with the family — though not necessarily in that order.

Thanks for stopping by.
