Sam Purkin

CEO

As the “go-to” guy and tech consultant specializing in all things Apple for over three decades, Sam Purkin enjoys a diverse, highly enthusiastic clientele from all walks of life. In addition to iconic music artists and producers, legendary Hollywood actors, producers and directors and art galleries along the West Coast and NYC, he has provided efficient, highly acclaimed service to thousands of “regular people” seeking his Apple, Mac and information technology (IT) expertise and specialization in Smart Home/Home Automation in residential and business environments.

Purkin and his team provide remote and onsite Mac, iPhone and PC consulting to the greater Los Angeles area and San Fernando Valley in addition to remote support worldwide. “We care deeply about our clients and are passionate about helping them feel secure and confident with their personal world of technology – be it in their family home or multi-faceted businesses. We understand how dependent everyone is on their technology working optimally, so if it’s important to you, it matters to us.”

A native of Calgary, Canada who is also an accomplished composer and musician, Purkin’s renown as a tech expert in the entertainment industry is rooted in his early years in Los Angeles, where he moved after graduating from Berklee College of Music. Joining forces with keyboardist and synth ace Michael Boddicker, he caught the ear of the legendary Quincy Jones, who hired him as a computer programmer on his all-star hit album Back on the Block.

As word of his Mac expertise spread, his early clientele grew to include Beck, Sheila E, Rickie Lee Jones and producer Trevor Horn (Seal, Yes, ABC). As word spread to the film composing community, he was also hired by greats like Michael Kamen (Lethal Weapon, X- Men), Basil Poledouris (Conan, Robocop), Bruce Broughton (Silverado) and Ira Newborn (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Dragnet). Purkin’s proficiency with music programming led to numerous opportunities to write music with contemporary jazz greats like Nathan East, Rick Braun and Don Grusin. He attributes many of the connections he made in building the music industry side of his business to the connections he made through pianist, arranger, composer and conductor Randy Waldman.

Branching off from there, Purkin began serving the tech needs of the likes of famed directors Steven Spielberg and Paul Thomas Anderson, and numerous performers in the film and TV industries, including setting up the computers in offices for many major motion pictures. He later cultivated a huge client base in the art gallery world both on the West Coast and New York City. At the same time, he worked with hundreds of “regular people,” building a huge residential based business and becoming a first call consultant for a wide variety of businesses outside the realms of entertainment and art. A protracted lawsuit after a major residential fire also led Purkin to become an tech expert in litigation and forensics. He has also added members to his team that have expertise in working with PCs.

“The most important thing my clients have found over the years is that they can trust me,” says Purkin. “My reputation speaks for itself as far as what I bring to the table in the tech world. As technology has evolved, ensuring and maintaining privacy and protecting clients by making sure of their systems are running optimally and that they’re backed up is of primary importance. I love problem solving and get so much joy out of getting people excited about what they can accomplish with these machines. I love being part of the process of helping while teaching them about exciting things they could never imagine.”
