Brian Lawrence has been supporting and teaching individuals to use personal computers (Apple and Windows), email, web browsing, wireless networks, purchasing safely on the web, online banking, personal websites, digital cameras, iPods, scanners, file management, digital security and purchasing/ selling on eBay for over 5 years. He earned his B.S. in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Computer Science in 1998 and since then has worked with technology in various capacities. He enjoys staying current with the latest technological innovations and solutions. Drawing on this experience, Brian recently started a new business in Bellingham, called Tech Guide, which specializes in friendly, expert, personalized technology support and consulting. This work allows him to capitalize on his passion for identifying individuals' needs and the technology that best meets those needs. In addition, Brian excels at teaching others to use technology by taking complex concepts and making them accessible to all individuals, regardless of their experience level. He infuses humor and practical application in his work with students.
Currently, Brian teaches classes at Whatcom, Bellingham Technical College, and Digital Art Moments (in Anacortes, WA). Two of his clients probably put it best when they said, "Technology makes life rich and interesting, and it really isn't that difficult with somebody who understands it" and "He is the most thorough teacher and explains things methodically and repeatedly and patiently until I 'get it'."
