Born and raised in Indianapolis but now living in ATL (Atlanta…for the newbies), my passion for technology has evolved from a side-hustle to make some money in college, to a hobby I only shared with my family and friends with, to an award-winning technology blog I shared with my virtual family, to a profession that I share with my clients.
I’ve pretty much done it all when it comes to tech. In college, I sold computers, HDTV’s and home audio systems to make some pocket change. Shortly after college, I worked for engineering firms drafting architectural floor plans and mechanical drawings. My professional career evolved to Computer-Aided Facilities Management managing spatial data for colleges and universities then shifted to IT support/engineering for technology companies to align with my passion.
During all of that, I’ve still ended up helping people with their tech. Didn’t matter if it was mounting flatscreens on living room walls, removing viruses and adware from computers, or telling people what equipment to buy, I’ve always been the “tech guy”. So I’ve finally decided to “take my talents to south beach” and officially use my passion for tech to help others make sense out of their gadgets, gizmos and services they use on a daily basis.
All that to say, when I’m not spending time with my lovely wife “Mrs. Tech” and my two smart, sweet and sassy girls “Boogie” and “Pooter”, you can either find me helping individuals and small business owners get the most out of their technology, or talking about the latest tech news and reviewing the hottest gadgets…and eating Peanut M&M’s and lusting over BMW’s (that I can’t afford…yet)
Even though my love of technology started way before blogging blew up, just about all of my influence comes from my launching the BrothaTech blog way back in 2008.
Simply put I’m a “Brotha that’s into tech” and launched the site because my wife
got tired of me talking to her about tech suggested I share my love of all things tech with like-minded people.
BrothaTech grew from a blog into a brand and I’ve been fortunate to work some of my favorite (other) tech brands like Sonos, Logitech and AT&T.
My laid-back style of writing started on my blog, but has also been featured in many dope publications including PC Magazine, Babble, Uptown Magazine, EbonyMag, Black Enterprise, to name a few.
It should be pretty obvious by now that I’m a fan of the Apple brand. Not only are the products beautiful, they are straight-forward to use. In other words, no matter what Apple product or service you choose, you know what you’re getting.
I like the uniform hardware design and seamless ecosystem that comprises Apple, and want to share that experience with others. I have talked and wrote about Apple news and products, even taken apart Apple devices…and put them back together of course.
My tech skills and my affinity for Apple has lead me to obtain the Apple Certified Support Professional certification that only validates that “I know what I know” and can help folks squeeze the most usefulness out of their Mac regardless if you’re a casual or professional user.
