Testimonials

“I cannot rave enough about Peter. He is our “go-to guru” for all things tech. He has worked with us for at least three years helping us sort out and fix malfunctioning and misbehaving computers, laptops, printers, modems, cell phones and similar devices. Not only is he very knowledgeable and efficient, but he is highly trustworthy which is important when you have someone working with your personal data. If he can’t fix something he will tell you, but he almost always does have a solution. He has earned my highest recommendation.

Peter Froud has helped me with several digital projects including iPhoto search and consolidation, hard drive transfers, iPhone hardware repair, understanding my options for digital sharing and communication among family member on different types of phones and computers and creating, consolidating and organizing files, folders and different categories of data so that I could actually use them.

Peter is great to work with, being very knowledgable but having that easy touch that allows one to get projects accomplished without feeling pushed. He has the rare skill of really being able to hear what one wants to accomplish and and being able to guide the projects to completion, no matter how advanced or beginning his client may be.

My sister and her family have used his help for a wide variety of projects and we are able to recommend him very highly. You will find him very easy to work with and able to accomplish a great deal, whether he is working side by side with you or if you prefer to simply turn a whole job over to him. He is a delightful person and a tech gem!
