you need help with on your Mac, I can help. I am not a certified

them quite often.

can't! All computers have problems eventually. I can solve them for you
and help relieve your stress.

Macintosh. He has a degree in
Digital Media. He loves music and photography. He is young, driven, and
passionate about life. The Doc works in the multimedia industry and, as

edit and produce video, graphics and even this website (no major feat I
Over the years he’s learned that despite their reputation, Apple Mac computers do fail sometimes. Of course they only tend to fail when you need them most. The Doc understands that sometimes the difference between getting a job done, and thus getting paid, relies on your computer to function properly. When it doesn’t, or to prevent it from failing - call The Doc!What can The Doc do for you?
Back Up your Mac
People don’t realize how important their data is until its gone. It can and will happen to you at some point if you are not careful. Let the Doc asses your system and advise you on how to go about archiving your data.
If you have a family of Mac’s then why not let them talk to each other? The Doc can set up a wireless home network for you so that you can stay connected while in the comfort your favorite chair. The Doc can even set up wireless printing and iTunes music for you.
iLife support (iTunes - iPhoto -
iMovie - iDVD - iWeb - Garageband)
Apple’s iLife suite, included free with every mac, is a great example of why the Mac is so successful. iLife is a suite of applications capable of creating any kind of media content you could imagine. And the best thing is that they are intuitive and easy to use. However, like all software, it does take some time to become familiar with it. If you are coming from the PC world and are used to certain programs or conventions you may have some difficulty understanding the simplicity and elegance that the iLife suite delivers. Let the Doc unlock the mystery and show you how to use iLife like a pro!
After time things start going haywire. That’s just how computers are. There are millions of files on your computer and thousands of functions happening simultaneously. They need some TLC every so often, just like a car needs a tune up. Depending on how you drive, or how long since your last tune up you may need a major overhaul! If you have an older system let the Doc evaluate what can be done to increase your Mac’s overall performance. Some times a complete re-installation of the Operating System (OS) is recommended. Often at that time it will also be upgraded to the latest version and a back up made of important data.
& Software Installation
The Doc may recommend that you add more memory (RAM), or perhaps you’d like to install a larger Hard Drive. Maybe you’d like to make home movies but your older mac doesn’t burn DVDs. Let the Doc install and configure all of your peripherals for you. If you have an older machine still running Mac OS 9, let the Doc upgrade you to Mac OS X.
