Macintosh

I'm a graduate of Berklee College Of Music, Boston (1988) with a degree in Music Production and Engineering. I started using Macs in the recording studio in 1992, and then began consulting for Apple® products in general in 1996.

I have professional experience with just about every Apple product made since 1988, and in all kinds of environments: residential and home-based businesses, advertising and public relations, manufacturing and sales, graphic design, and of course the recording studio.

I think you'd have a tough time finding a tutor in Broward or Palm Beach who is more effective at teaching you how to get the most out of your Apple® products. I like to think I'm helping people realize their dreams a little, and I try to make it easy and even fun!

Music Production

I'm a graduate of Berklee College Of Music, Boston (1988) with a major in Music Production and Engineering and a minor in Performance.

My background in non-linear hard disk-based audio recording goes back over 22 years. My professional experience with Pro Tools® began just before Version 2.0 - honestly longer than anyone I've ever met, including some Digidesign employees! I managed the first recording studio in South Florida that had a Pro Tools® system installed. I've also owned my own home studio since 1996.

In addition I've performed live sound consulting services, for example on Pink Floyd's 1994 tour of the USA.

I'm also the recipient of fourteen ADDY Awards (Advertising Federation) for excellence in Engineering and Production for Radio and Television.

We all want things to last. People always got photo albums handed down to them. With everything being digital and possibly cloud-based, what is there to actually "hand down?" Just ones and zeroes. The data itself needs to be archived.   Archiving is permanent storage for safety and posterity, as opposed to backups which are for safety and short-term storage.

If you've ever run into an issue with Safari where it stalls and never loads a web page, yet other browsers work okay, then this just might be the answer to your dreams.   Since Safari tries to load a page and then immediately fails, and you've verified you do have Internet access with another browser like Firefox, it's safe to assume there's a DNS issue (if DNS breaks, you simply... read more

As the iPhone 6 is released, many people are being notified on their older models that iOS 8 is available for download.
