Be Your Own Nerd

"Be Your Own Nerd" is a YouTube channel that helps with all your technology questions and needs. It helps you manage the technology that you use in your life.


I've been living and breathing technology for 36+ years. I've helped all sorts of people with their technology-related problems and questions. I have a love for communicating with anyone and describing technology in easy to understand ways.

I want to help you fall in love with technology the way I did.

Now more than ever, technology is becoming part of our daily lives, and I want to help you understand, control, and fix it when it gives you problems.

Have a great tech day! :-)
