Opinions expressed by ICN authors are their own.

Terry Jarrell is an Apple consultant, instructor and writer based in sunny Florida. He founded Max Your Macs in 2004 in order to bring a better level of direct support services to clients throughout the state. As a member of the Apple Consultants Network for many years, he was part of that organization's advisory council for three one-year terms.

Terry recognizes that the most productive and happy device users are the those who are the best informed about how to use their devices and software. That observation has been the basis for his growing emphasis on training and instructional services. He has led countless workshops for Apple Stores, professional groups and Fortune 500 companies, and he has led his own classes in cities throughout Florida. He also created and taught a variety of Apple-related classes at the University of North Florida for several years.

Writing is also important to Terry. He has been a contributor and a reviewer for several online publications, including Cult of Mac, Techware Labs, Macsimum News and The Daytona Beach News-Journal. He is currently a product review specialist for iBusiness Magazine online and in print.

Terry also works with legal professionals as a Rocket Matter Certified Expert, and he currently offers two legal-specific technology classes that have been accredited by the Florida Bar for continuing legal education. He believes that technology training for legal professionals is important because factors such as the rapid rise in the use of mobile devices and cloud services are contributing to the modernization of legal practices.

Terry just launched a new company, Terry Jarrell Co., through which he hopes to bring a more focused and personalized level of attention to clients. He describes his firm as a "personal trainer" for users' Apple-related technology needs.
