About The Director

You can call me Rob, or Robbie.

I, Robbie (ROB B. Campbell, get it?), started out in technology with the Atari 2600 and the good'ol'  "Trash-80" from Radio Shack, but always had envy for my friend's Apple IIc (dude, Ultima III was the bomb!).  Then, when fueling my left-brain at USC as a Film/Theatre major, my right-brain was fed by working on the SE/30s in the computer lab (probably right next to Kevin Mitnick, the infamous cyberthief).  Always trying to hook up my friends with Norton Utilities, I was always the "MacDaddy with the Daddy Mac".  After college, back in NYC, I got sick of waiting tables as a professional auditioner and listened to my father's sage advice:

"Robert, get a job!  Instead of fiddling with that damn thing all day, why don't you make some money doing it?"  Hmmm, what a great idea!  

So, after working at BBC International as the Mac Director, in retail at an Apple Dealer, in ad agencies like Bates USA and Harrison & Star (an Omicom affiliate), and at an official Apple-Authorized Mac Consulting firm, I realized it was time to go on my own. Thus, MacNRG was born in 2000.  After four months of tooling around in S.E. Asia, I got busy back in NYC and continue to rock Mac businesses into happy efficiency.

I love to get my geek on by helping people out with their Mac and Apple devices, and I am most proud of being certified in Mac OS X (now macOS), macOS Server, and Final Cut Pro.
