Ever since Tim Hannon met his first Macintosh in 1984, he’s been hooked. Skilled in supporting all versions of the Mac operating system and every Mac model, Tim has the rare ability to explain the technical in plain English. He relishes the challenge of a complex problem, yet equally enjoys teaching novice users about application features and keyboard shortcuts that enhance their productivity and efficiency. What’s more, he’ll involve you as much — or as little — as you’d like in the process. Want Tim to come in and just fix the problem? He’ll let you know when you’re back up and running. Prefer to glean insights from his vast knowledge? Then pull up a chair and let him empower you to troubleshoot future situations.
Tim is a certified member of the Apple Consultant Network. He is an Apple Certified Support Professional (ACSP) for all versions of Mac OS X from version 10.3 (Panther) to the current 10.9 (Mavericks).
Tim founded Sound Support in 1998 and has 20 years of experience supporting Macintosh networks. His career started at Princeton Regional Schools in New Jersey and then he lead a team of computer consultants while at the University of Washington. He earned a BA from Brown University in American Civilization. Read his resumé.
On larger projects, or when services outside of his focus are required, Tim collaborates with a network of colleagues who all share the highest level of expertise, dedication and passion for their work.
When not working on Macs, Tim enjoys sailing, running and watching Nova.

Find Tim on the following social media networks:
Tim speaks multiple languages. He speaks Ignorant User, in which he can turn computer jargon and complicated issues into layperson’s terms and present them in a friendly, knowledgeable, and easy-to-understand way. I’ve also heard him speak Professional Computerese, when he talks my husband who is a network manager or to the other computer professionals in my place of employment. He knows his Mac’s inside and out, both current and vintage models. I can count on him to provide me with the education I need in a gently and respectfully manner. And I can also count on him to give me enough information and practical advice to help me make good decisions on maintenance, upgrades, and choices in software and hardware. He’s bailed me out both at home and at work numerous times, and I know all I have to do is call, and he’s there. On top of that, he’s a really nice guy.” Read more testimonials.
