Nerd Work is no longer operating.


Due to an amazing opportunity, I am unfortunately no longer able to operate Nerd Work.

I'm very sorry to not be able to assist my clients with their IT woes anymore, and I want to thank everyone for their support over the years.


But don't worry, I can recommend a great local IT specialist for you.

Peter Wright - The IT Guy . He's local, highly skilled and very capable of sorting out your needs. And yes, he's also an Apple guru.
