A Bit About Me

I am an avid computer user. The attraction started at a job during my college years when the company switched from glorified typewriters to computers running (OK, I’m aging myself here) Windows 3.1. Basically, I needed to quickly figure out those new-fangled systems and keep things going. It was a challenge I relished and sparked an interest in technology that continues to this day.

Over the years I’ve used this interest to educate people at both the corporate and individual levels as well as lend some tips and know-how to adult-ed students. My love of learning new programs and skills eventually brought me to more creative endeavors, including working with Photoshop, designing web sites and creating more compelling PowerPoint presentations for corporate clients.

Having experienced my own issues with computer troubleshooting and trying to learn new programs, I’ve always felt drawn to helping individuals better understand their own computers. I enjoy sharing tips and shortcuts to help people be more productive.

Finally, having a business degree and a good relationship with numbers, I’ve found myself pulled into various jobs requiring strong bookkeeping skills. In turn, I provide assistance to businesses and individuals needing to track their finances in Quicken or Quickbooks.

As you can see, I thrive on variety. I enjoy being able to put my mind and hands on a wide array of things with the overall goal of helping my clients understand and use technology better, get their message out more effectively and grow their business.

Under the umbrella of Access Computing, I spent several years helping develop and teach computer classes at Timberland. When Access Computing morphed into Vayda Productions, I was responsible for designing and running presentations for in-house employee rallies as well as sales meetings throughout North America and Europe.
