Matthew R. Baker profile

Hello, I'm Matthew.

For most of my life, I’ve been the guy you call when you have a tech issue.

In 2019, I self-published a book on computers with the goal of explaining how they work and how to troubleshoot them when they don’t. I came up with the very creative title of How Computers Work and What to Do When They Don’t.

In 2020, right before the worldwide lockdown, I started a business building websites for small businesses. That business has evolved, and through it I now help small businesses, solopreneurs, and entrepreneurs with a wide range of their branding, marketing, and technology needs.

I also work for a large defense contractor—can’t say much more about that.

When I’m not serving clients and solving problems, I’m probably jamming onstage at church, reading a great book, learning a language for fun, or enjoying nature.

So… how can I help you?
