MY Recommendations

What people are saying about me

"I first met Brian at the local Apple store, when he helped me with some transition problems to my new laptop. He's incredibly knowledgable. He's my 'go to' person whenever I have questions about any of my systems. But more than that, Brian is super bright and personable. He would be a great asset to any organization, not just the Genius bar. I can highly recommend him"
