Creativity + Technology
In an industry so focused on “thinking outside the box”, why does IT and the technical needs of highly creative companies become just an afterthought? With over 10 years of experience, and the flexibility of being independent, I can help where “the big boys” can not, whether it’s non-linear 4k editing workstations, cloud based render farms, or simply setting up a high speed internal network; I can help.
I have overseen company wide technology projects, transformed creative workflows, interfaced with Fortune 500 clients, and helped more "normal people" understand techno-speak than I can count. I’ve worn a ton of hats: sales, technical support, graphic design, management, marketing, videography, client services, and barista to name a few (That last one is for added flavor. Pun intended). As a result, I have a unique ability to oversee multi-disciplinary projects, and navigate through the difficulties IT for creatives presents.
Serving creative agencies and brands has given me a real world perspective on supporting companies who rely on creative technologies like Adobe Creative Cloud, Cinema4D, DaVinci Resolve, Blender, Octane and all the unique hardware these applications require.
Apple Trained + Certified
Rest easy in knowing my knowledge and training comes right from the source. Since my departure from "the mothership", I have worked as an in-house IT, at Apple Authorized Service Providers, and as a consultant. I am prepared for any environment.
Being independent gives me the freedom to adapt to your needs. The scalability of "being my own boss" ensures you get support you need, without any of the fluff a Managed Service Provider would force upon you, or the added cost of a full time employee.
