Roger Smith, Artegenix

After a series of jobs at computer companies that seemed to start up, merge, and collapse at a truly frantic pace (but were never boring) I decided to head out on my own, working with Macs and LANs.The intervening years taught me a lot about running a small business, customer support on a personal scale and customer interaction. Like technology, those are lessons that have to be built on each day to be a successful consultant. I enjoy working with Macs because I feel I am more productive when the computer was designed with the end user in mind.And I work a lot with networks since they were the last black art in the computer field. Here in Silicon Valley I see a lot of unusual and unique things. Ask me and I’ll show you a photo of my favorite WiFi LAN.
