I started out with a Mac SE/30 and a lot of love for that little machine. It was during those early years using PageMaker, Freehand and Photoshop that I learned the importance of keeping a system in tip-top shape.
Now, 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.
Based in Huntington Beach, California — a.k.a. “Surf City, U.S.A.” — I started out as most Mac-using folk do — as a graphic design artist.
As time went by, I found myself committing more and more time to creating custom business solutions, which ultimately led me to change gears, becoming a full-time systems administrator and FileMaker solution developer.
As I began to focus on servicing Mac OS X systems, I saw the need to create a simple, yet effective tool for Mac system administrators that would allow them to quickly address routine maintenance issues.
This vision ultimately led to the development of Yasu (Yet another system utility), which has become very popular with both system administrators and regular users alike.
Today I work as a Salesforce.com administrator & developer for a large educational products company in Southern California. I’m working (self-study) towards my admin 201 and developer 401 certifications. Other regular duties include acting as a Microsoft SQL database admin and FileMaker developer.
I’m married to an awesome woman who I’d be lost without, and have 3 wonderful kids that I’m absolutely proud of. In my spare time, I like to tinker with WordPress themes & plugins, play music (blues mostly), and spend time with the family — though not necessarily in that order.
Finally, and most importantly, I’m a born-again, bible believing Christian who’s not ashamed of his faith and grateful for the grace I’ve been shown. If you’d like to hear my story, I’d be happy to share with you.
