Chad Fust is a technology professional whose expertise ranges from repair and consulting to multimedia production and training. His experiences using and teaching about tech have cultivated a diverse set of skills and interests. A busy day might begin with him leading a group training session on Google Apps, visiting a colleague to solve a computer quibble, producing an instructional video, setting up a home network for a freelance client, and recording a gaming podcast in his home office.
Born on the cusp between two generations, Chad's approach to technology is practical, friendly, and humanist. He's a digital native, but he doesn't let jargon or technical terms obscure what he views as an inherently social profession. Working as an apprentice technician under his uncle, he learned that satisfying the person is more important than fixing the computer. Implementing elegant, expedient solutions (that are not just easy to use, but usable every day) is Chad's hallmark.
Chad nurtures other talents as well: he's a scuba diver, homebrewer, and photographer. He's written songs, penned fiction and prose, designed on paper and pixels. He throws himself into new interests with passion and curiosity.
