Co-founder and Head of Content

I’ve worked in Technology for nearly a decade, spanning my career over IT Security, Xbox Support, and as a CRM Business Analyst. From providing technical support for a Fortune 500 company to solving complex issues for Xbox players, I’ve always found myself helping people with their problems with tech.

In my free time, I love to play Pickleball, read fantasy novels, and travel to international destinations.

As a lifelong tech enthusiast and former UX designer, I have always been passionate about the intersection of technology and design. As a first time homeowner, I have really dug into the craft of home automation, and the issues that sometimes come with it. Hence, the creation of the site you are on now.
