I’m a 31 year old tech head who lives in New York City with my beautiful wife.
I’ve been dabbling with computers for about 13 years. After breaking a few machines in college and learning how they worked, I started my professional career at IBM and stayed there for 5 years before moving to NYC. Currently, I’m the Director of IT at a media company in New York.
I created fixedByVonnie in June of 2013 because I wanted to give people a comfortable place to fix common problems with computers and mobile devices. I can’t tell you how many times Chrome was running slower than a fat man in a marathon or how many times I wished I could connect to the web using my smartphone as a Hotspot.
I did what everyone does, googled it; however, I was chronically vexed with two things: Either I would have to scroll through dozens of forum pages or read abstruse articles written by what felt like cold computer scientists without an ounce of humanity.
fixedByVonnie is here to make using technology fun again. I also post news articles from time to time and offer my opinion on current events of the day, but the chief purpose of this website is to get your gadgets working again in an entertaining, no-nonsense way. So you’ll see lots of high-resolution images with picture-by-picture walk-throughs and my candid responses to questions in the comments.
I wanted it to feel like I’m right there with you so whether you’re trying to replace the keyboard of your Macbook Air or discern the differences between the alphabet soup of Windows versions, I try to give the answer in a concise, cogent way with a little bit of my personality sprinkled on top.
I’ve been posting about one article per day since I started in June so you can count on finding the newest tip or trick to solve a problem.
One other thing, I’m a pretty inquisitive guy so I not only like asking questions but also being asked questions. Heck, If I don’t know the answer I’m not afraid to say, “Good question” which incidentally, is code for: “I’m clueless”. But given that I’ve worked with computers for over a decade I think I have a little bit of wisdom to share…
