Why “Dean Of Mac?” Well, name is Dean and I love the Mac! I also live in a town named Macomb. So, Dean Of Mac. I worked in Higher Education so the “Dean” fits. I also use it for social media accounts. It keeps people guessing!

I was an Apple Systems Administrator/Systems Engineer for 25 years. I began managing the Apple platform immediately after graduating with a Master’s in Instructional Design. When I started managing the Apple platform I used RevRDist and ended with JAMF/Casper Suite. Between them I used NetBoot/Apple Software Restore (ASR) and DeployStudio with Apple Remote Desktop (ARD). I also have experience as an Enterprise Applications Engineer. All of my experience is in Higher Education. I’ve since retired and am now a substitute teacher for my local school district.


My current setup is a 24-inch iMac with 16 gigs of memory and a 512 gig SSD. I also own a 13-inch MacBook Pro with 16 gigs memory and a 512 gig SSD. My iPad of choice is a silver 11″ model with 128 gigs of memory. The desk lights are the Edge model from Lume Cube. The desk is the Jarvis standing desk from Fully. I wear my Apple Watch 7 all the time.

I’ve been a Mac fanatic since high school. I have a 100% Apple-base Ecosystem for personal use. Yeah, I understand that people need Microsoft Windows. For work – okay. For pleasure – nope.
