My passion is helping people. I have a knack for it. Twenty-five years ago I was helping people learn how to play the piano - today I'm helping people learn how to play the computer. I work primarily with raw beginners and those just getting going. I guide you step by step in setting up your online presence so you’re excited to share it with the world. I've led an enjoyably varied life over the years - it all adds to what I do.
In addition to being heavily involved in technology from many angles, I own a digital media publication (online newspaper) called the Gateway Gazette which I started with my mom, Pam, back in 2004. I'm also a published author of YA/Fantasy. My background in publishing, small business and professional industries all helped to inspire my desire to develop this style of training programs.
I have current, hands-on experience that has grown and developed over the last 25 years through online courses, tutorials, trial and error, and sometimes just getting lucky. I have 25+ years of real life, business experience in the fields of teaching, technology, writing, real estate appraisals, horsemanship, music, marketing and publishing. All of this combined has given me the know-how, insight, passion, and desire to help others through teaching useful application of technology in a way that will be most impactful and achievable in their lives.
I'm the techie who speaks non-techie!
