MacAdmin in Upstate New York

I live in upstate New York and specialize in macOS management. I’ve been doing support since high school when I stumbled into fixing the Macs in our computer labs because my photography teacher asked me to look at them when the IT staff wasn’t sure what to do with them.
In my spare time I enjoy woodworking, cars and technology. Especially encoding and transcoding videos. I can nerd out about that a lot.
