"Tim is a wonderfully unique person. His overall outlook on life is so positive and constructive it's hard not to trust him from the first day you meet. He is bright, dedicated and confident which translates into a very successful forensic technologist. It's not often that you find a "techie" that works as well with the business as he does with hard core coding. I have witnessed first hand Tim untangling a technological spaghetti bowl of code and delivering on the commitment to get it done on time within budget. A true gem in our field. Plus he is a really fun person too!"

About the "Geeks Guide To™" Series
Whether you are a full blown Geek that breathes technology, or a non-Geek that needs to deal with Geeks and technology, this series has cutting edge concepts and new approaches for you. Neurotypical or Neurodiverse this book is for you!
“Geeks Guide To™” is based on my experience in many areas such as, a Geek with Asperger’s, independent database developer, entrepreneur, employer, manager, and employee. I believe we geeks view and interact with the world and information in a way associated with Asperger’s Syndrome. We may lag in the social graces and communication, but the wiring of our brains gives us unique ways to view and work with the technology of our increasingly digital world.
The “Geeks Guide to™” series is a two-way street. This book is written for the Geek and how to communicate with the non-Geek world. Many will be for the rest of the world where technology is not the universe or culture you inhabit. In those, I will explain the thoughts and viewpoint of the differently hard wired Geek and Asperger’s brain. You will learn new more effective approaches to dealing with the world of technology and the people that create, build, deploy, and maintain all the physical and virtual aspect of our modern world.
