Sandy started her technical writing career years ago as an IT Project Manager creating both business and technical documents. With solid knowledge in company manuals and step-by-step guides, she then turned her love of writing toward consumer tech and the internet.

Through her experience as a Project Manager and Department Manager, Sandy learned how important productivity and time management were, but not just professionally, personally as well. So, she has been writing how-tos, guides, and roundups of products and services to help others use technology. 

Her passion for writing about technology landed her writing gigs at websites like How-To Geek, iDownloadBlog, groovyPostMakeUseOf, AppAdvice, and other online tech-related companies. She now uses, tests, and covers everything from computer applications and hardware to mobile devices and gadgets to smart home accessories. She's a streaming music and movie/tv fan, too, and is always on the lookout for reader tips to share.

Sandy has also worked as an SEO Editor which took her to a project as Technical Editor for the book “Effective SEO and Content Marketing: The Ultimate Guide for Maximizing Free Web Traffic”. And with her extensive knowledge of Apple devices and systems, she was the Technical Editor for the book "iPhone Unlocked".

My Gear

Exploring technology means owning devices and gadgets. Sandy works on a MacBook Pro and uses an iPhone and iPad daily. But she also has a Windows 10 computer and Android phone. You’ll find an Apple TV, Roku smart TV, HomePod, Amazon Echo, and accessories like smart light bulbs in her home. She’ll be wearing an Apple Watch to get through the workday and enjoying games on a Nintendo Switch on the weekends.


Sandy holds a B.S. in Information Technology with an emphasis on Web Design and Development from Kaplan University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude. She has continued to better her writing skills with miscellaneous classes at Writer's Digest University.
