My Mission

Patient, expert help for beginning and experienced computer users of all ages.

What's a Maven?

The American Heritage Dictionary defines Maven as "A person who has special knowledge or experience; an expert." I have a Master's degree in Computer Science and many years of experience as a computer programmer, teacher, and consultant.  Microsoft has recognized me as a Most Valuable Professional and Windows XP Expert for the help that I give to Windows users.

What's a Computer?
