Ammon Beckstrom

Ammon Beckstrom is an IT Pro living in Houston, Texas where he works on massively global systems implementations. He's a husband, a father, and former expat. A self-proclaimed Mac app junkie, Ammon was a Microsoft Evangelist in another life, but now he swears that "once you go Mac, you never go back." When he's not working or playing with the kids, you can usually find him basking in the sweet electric glow of his MacBook's glossy display where he occasionally updates his oft-neglected blog.
