My aim is to help people make the most out of their Macs. As an Apple Mac user since 1989, and a Windows user, it still amazes me how right Apple have got it.

Concerned about security? I can help you lock down your Mac to make it the safest on-line experience there is!


OK, so I am no spring chicken, I admit it! I started work as a Software Engineer back in 1985 and worked with my first Mac in 1989.

    Relocation to bonny
    Dumfries and Galloway

    We decided to 'up sticks' and bring the family to Auchencairn on the Solway Firth. A wonderful place to bring up kids and explore what the great outdoors has to offer. Oh and a little bit of work too!

    Our first App on the Apple Store

    We published our first (of many!) Apps on the Apple App Store - NavStation - for sailors. It's still going strong today!

    Launch of "DG Mac Man" Service

    Having spent the last 13 years helping the good folk of Auchencairn and surroundings with Windows PC problems, I decided it was time spread the good news that is Apple Mac!
