Hello! I’m Michael
Technology Consultant Extrodinaire
It all started way back in the late ’70s while I was in the Police Force in South Africa coding offender fingerprints to be entered into a central database, which by the way, was the first in Africa, and the technology bug bit me. Since then I have programmed, analyzed, trained, consulted, business owned and managed my way from Africa to New Zealand to Canada.
My training started as a COBOL programmer way back in 1978 while in the Police Force and I have never looked back, from designing software to owning my own Microsoft training center in South Africa, to managing a call center in New Zealand. I have the experience you need. And I have seen Penguins!
Being an avid hiker, photographer and Rotarian also give me a good life balance with Technology on one side and the wind in my hair on the other.
Having over 35 years of experience with these fancy boxes called computers and smart devices and having been a trainer/consultant in 3 different countries, I offer all this and more to you and as I said before, the lure of home-brewed coffee does wonders for the little grey cells.
My Approach & Values
Having the tools and support for the job at hand is paramount for a successfully completed experience. Consider me the toolbox for all your Technology needs. I are able to show you how to use your devices to get the job done. Sharing my knowledge and getting my clients to feel more comfortable in the world of technology is where I come in.
Treat clients as you would like yourself to be treated is how I approach each new and individual consulting experience. While there are many ways to complete a task, I will get you going in the manner which best suits you and your circumstances and if you are not sure then we will work together to find the right solution for you.
