Ever since Tim Hannon met his first Macintosh in 1984, he’s been hooked. Skilled in supporting all versions of the Mac operating system and every Mac model, Tim has the rare ability to explain the technical in plain English. He relishes the challenge of a complex problem, yet equally enjoys teaching novice users about application features and keyboard shortcuts that enhance their productivity and efficiency. What’s more, he’ll involve you as much — or as little — as you’d like in the process. Want Tim to come in and just fix the problem? He’ll let you know when you’re back up and running. Prefer to glean insights from his vast knowledge? Then pull up a chair and let him empower you to troubleshoot future situations.
