Since it’s not common for a comedian to join the ranks of a tech blog, I’m very excited to introduce myself as the newest blogger here at TheAppleBlog. Hopefully, you can count on me to make you laugh a wee bit while reading.
And since it’s certainly not common for a comedian to also be a Mac expert, I’m also excited to introduce myself as the SysAdmin of a 250-Mac network at a sweet (but undisclosed) location in the heart of Los Angeles. Hopefully, you can count on me to teach you a thing or two about your Macs.
I’ve been studying, practicing, ripping apart, fixing, tinkering, and mastering Apple computers since my folks bought me an Apple II+ back in the early Mesozoic era of computing. (Yes, there were dinosaurs roaming the planet when I first learned BASIC.) But what started at age eleven as a hobby has become an obsession now that I manage hundreds of Macs. And don’t even get me started about my iPod or iPhone collection. In fact, I’ll probably write about that in another post…
I’ve also been studying, practicing, ripping apart, fixing, tinkering, and mastering comedy since my folks took me to an Andy Kaufman concert. I’ve performed stand-up comedy at The Laugh Factory & The Improv; I’ve acted on TV shows such as “The West Wing” and “Sesame Street”; and I produce and direct a comedy troupe in Los Angeles called “Fake Radio.” For nine years, we’ve re-created actual radio shows from the 1940’s and 1950’s with incredible guest stars.
For any of my Mac-tastic work, you can follow me here as well as on Twitter or over at The Mac Dweeb blog. I look forward to reading your comments on my articles…and sharing the occasional knock-knock joke.
