From the frozen tundra of Minnesota I hail, not by choice but by birth. I bring with me a head full of useless knowledge and trivia. I know, “Is this guy some sort of Superhero?” No, just an ordinary man, or am I?

I’ve always been a tinkerer and owned many PC’s throughout my life. One day I grew tired of always troubleshooting and wanted to just enjoy the computer. From that point on, I was a Mac user. Using my machines to edit movies and other multimedia content.

I work in Higher Education as an Apple Admin at a college in Minnesota. Since I came onboard, we have been making the switch to becoming a 100 percent Apple campus. Before I was here, there was a big fear of Macs. Now there is a love affair. I created the site ADaMac to journal my troubleshooting experiences and hopefully help other Admins out who had nowhere to turn. A large-scale mixed Apple/Microsoft environment , can be tricky at times. Aside from Apple, I have a wife and two kids that keep me pretty busy. I love music, film & of course video games. I’m also a volunteer Firefighter in my city. My feeling is that I want to have a lot of experiences to look back on.

So how did I become a writer for TheAppleBlog? I guess I sent the right email at the right time because here I am. I’m very excited to have a little part of the site and I will do my best to contribute the best articles I can.

  1. Hi. Will look forward to your articles on various mac topics. If you are looking for ideas: i would like to see a good overview article on how to set-up a mac mini to run from an external firewire HD (7200rpm) or how to upgrade the internal one to 7200 1tb

      It’s been added to my to-do list, thanks for the suggestion.

  2. What happened to Tom? I haven’t seen an article from him in months.

    1. Unfortunately Tom is no longer writing for TheAppleBlog.

    2. That is unfortunate. I really don’t think I have a reason to visit this site anymore.

    3. That’s too bad. Tom still writes at his own blog here:

  3. thanks. i have added Tom’s website to my daily blog visits.
