Certified Support
for Mac, iPad, and iPhone

As an Apple Certified Support Professional for OS X 10.11 El Capitan, and an Apple Certified Technical Coordinator for OS X 10.10, I'm ready to help with any Apple-related technology needs.

In addition to immediate needs, I'm ready to help your organization with your next technology project.

  • Set up new Mac, iPad, and iPhone devices.
  • Configure organizational email, contacts, and shared contacts across all your devices, for everyone on your team.
  • Troubleshooting WiFi and networking issues.
  • Assist in selecting best-in-class infrastructure equipment (wifi, networking, printers, servers, scanners) for your organization.
  • Immediate help to get your technology back on track.

I look forward to working with you and your team.

Capstan Systems Monitoring
for Mac

Monitor and maintain the integrity of your Mac systems with Capstan Systems Monitoring. Every hour, your Macs check in with our mothership, and let us know if there's anything we need to take care of.

iPad and iPhone Management

At some point, keeping track of your company iPhones, Apps, email settings, and resources becomes too much to wrap your head around.

We've worked with small teams and large installations to implement Apple's DEP and VPP, and implement mobile device management (MDM) tools that keep everyone and their devices up to date, providing a dashboard for managing devices, apps, and settings.

Get in Sync

Keeping your team's Macs, iPhones, and iPads in sync with your email, contacts, calendars, and documents can be a pain. Let me help you with that, and you'll no longer have to go to your phone to see some old emails, but your Mac for others.

Exceptional teams need exceptional support.

Over the years I've had the pleasure to work alongside corporate creative teams, school districts, and businesses big and small.
