About the Guru

People often ask me “How did you learn all this?” I’ve been working with computers since 1984, when I bought my first Macintosh. I became an Apple ambassador, and — along with several others who also bought that early Mac — I helped start the Downtown Business Users Group or DBUG, which is still going strong today.

A few years ago, I saw that there was a large number of seniors with questions about their smart phones, tablets, and computers. They were frustrated because they couldn’t understand how to use their devices. And their wizard-grandchildren wouldn’t or couldn’t take the time to teach them.

To help those frustrated seniors, I started offering classes through senior centers and lifetime learning programs. And I discovered that I have a knack for teaching and I really love it. I’m patient, I don’t use jargon, and I’m not satisfied until I see the light of understanding in your eyes.
