Meet Our Presenter

Ron is a retired technologist. He started as a Canadian Flight Surgeon and then started a family medical practice on Vancouver Island. Ron wanted an electronic office and bought an interest in a start-up software company in Calgary that made an Electronic Patient Record. As his family practice grew, so did his software company.

Ron retired, sold his medical practice and other business interests, and he and his wife traveled for two years. They bought a home in Mesa Arizona. Ron loves technology and spends his spare time doing presentations for Tech for Seniors and computer clubs.
