Nick Standish

I have always been interested in technology, though as the father of two small children, my perspective has changed recently. Now I look for technology that impacts my family. Be it through great apps that my daughter loves, products that help our family have fun or save money and security that keeps us safe. You will find all of these subjects (and more) as the blog continues to grow.

As the author, technology is a hobby. I did not go to school for any IT subjects and I am not the guy you ask to write code for your website (though my dad is that person if you are looking for a great web designer!) I am however the guy that has a true interest and love for technology that saves your family time, money and energy.

About me specifically. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Western Michigan University and a Master's Degree in Business Administration from Grand Valley State University. Thanks to my education, I feel like a relatively experienced writer that can add value for the time readers spend here. This blog is a hobby that I hope someday becomes more as followers experience what I can bring to the table. My family includes two great children under 2-1/2 and my wife of nearly ten years. To put it plainly, I am blessed to have what I have.
