Shirley ShowalterWhen I moved from PC to Mac platforms in my writing business, I knew I needed the help of an expert. Here’s how I advertised. Wanted: Mac specialist who translates tech jargon into English, has patience with a semi-savvy user, and who has a sense of humor. Wow, James has more than met my expectations in every way. His skills are both broad and deep, including both hardware and software. He can work at both the strategic and tactical levels.

I thought I would hire him only a few times. I find that there’s nothing I need (as I head to my book launch) that is beyond his ability. I am honored to recommend him.

When I approached James to make some improvements in the functionality of my web site, he came up with several possible solutions, some of which worked and some didn’t. He managed to integrate all the pieces I liked into one simple solution that gave me exactly what I was after. He is efficient and punctual, he’s an excellent teacher, and he’s easy to be around. I look forward to working with James again as my web site grows.
