About Hugo Heriz-Smith:
Heriz-Smith began working professionally in the desktop publishing industry (as they used to call it) in 1989 – just a year after Apple released its Macintosh II, which featured a whopping 1MB of onboard memory.
As the go-to tech guy for Delaware’s first service bureau, Heriz-Smith’s responsibilities ranged from the ‘front of the box’ (typesetting) to ‘inside the box’ (upgrades, adding RAM, etc.) to ‘connecting the boxes’ (networking). His reputation as a knowledgeable and super-competent computer tech eventually landed him a position managing the electronic prepress department at a commercial offset printing company. Heriz-Smith also began teaching continuing education classes at the Delaware College of Art & Design.
By 2000, the demand for Heriz-Smith’s services allowed him to become a private consultant, working for companies in the financial services space, advertising agencies, graphic design companies and individual clients in the mid-Atlantic region. In 2004, he relocated to the Camden, Maine area and began providing Apple-centric support and teaching macOS and iOS-focused classes in New England.
Today, Hugo provides consultant services and teaches private classes that cater to a broad spectrum of Apple product users, from the very experienced to the new user.
