TECHNOLOGY SERVICES

mediaslinger has been around as a business since 2001, and during that time I have done a lot of computer and technology-related work for home, business, and the arts community. The variety of services I can provide is broad (scroll down to see a list), but one thing that ties it all together is that regardless of the project, I prefer to work with people who are more inclined to say that I work with them than to say that I work for them. It is my experience that someone who wants someone else to just do it for them doesn’t really know what they want and will rarely be happy.

Obviously, one reason folks come to me is that they may not have the required knowledge to get the job done. I’m more than happy to help people out, I just don’t want them to end up feeling they don’t understand what I’m doing or that my skills are some sort of mystery. Here is a list of just some of the services I can provide. If you have any questions or are wondering if there’s something else I could help you with, please reach out to me through the CONTACT page.

Macintosh Consulting
I will listen to you, assess your needs, and solve your problems quickly and effectively. System upgrades, software installation, file organization, photos, music, video, cloud backup, and much more. My background in teaching Macintosh classes for more than a decade makes me ideal for figuring out what you want to do and tutoring you so you can do it yourself.

iPhone / iPad / iOS Consulting
I can help you get all of your devices optimized and talking to each other. Syncing, iCloud, extending battery life, and lots of the tips and tricks that I share in my Intro to Your iPhone class.

Hardware and Software Consulting
I have the experience to advise you on the computer to get, the additional devices that will work for you, the best printer and router/modem, the right software, and I have the skills to set it all up and make it work. If you’re setting up new technology in your home or business or need some help de-bugging an existing setup, I can help you figure it out.

Music and Arts-related Hardware and Software System Design
If you need some help in putting together a project utilizing technology for a performance or installation, I can advise you of tools that can solve your problems or work with you to create a setup or interface that will make your art possible. For more details see the LESSONS page or CONTACT me to discuss your ideas.

Web Design
I have been doing web design since 2001 and have experience designing static, active, and responsive websites. I am familiar with a number of technologies including HTML5, Javascript, PHP, Flash, WordPress, streaming audio and video, and more. I can set up a site and/or blog for you with domain-based email and statistics monitoring, connect it to your social media presence, and even tutor you in how to update it yourself. See the links below for examples of some of my work.
