Before the iPhone was even a thing, I walked into Apple on Michigan Ave in Chicago and filled out an application. The Creative handed me a pink paper clip to contain the stack of paper I was about to submit to her boss. Apparently, that store receives a bagillion applications a week, and I sometimes wonder if I got the job because a pink paperclip stood out from the rest. I learned a lot over five years at Apple, and then left to launch Appinstructor. After four years, I moved to Minneapolis and led the academic technology program at a private school; during that time, I continued to pick up a few Appinstructor clients here and there. I could spend all day sharing stories and lessons from each of those chapters.
There’s another storyline, though, running alongside this. All the while, I was also pursuing a call to become an Anglican priest. I’m convinced that the mysteries of this world are found within the message and life of Jesus. Little did I know that God would merge my joy of strategizing tech solutions and my joy of building faith. This happened by launching a new church in Minneapolis. Not only is every member of my family loving this adventure, but we are surrounded by such a solid team of folks. You would love it here.
So, in order to bring more focus to my life, I am totally closing down Appinstructor and all its related projects. Even though I only have a few clients and projects, it’s still enough to distract me. If you’re looking for tech help, please visit the Apple Consultants Network, where some quality folks are listed. I don't take it lightly that you requested help from me. Thank you.
