For Chris, working with technology is not a job. It's a lifelong passion. He started out as a teenager working in an Apple retail store, and moved up to an Apple systems engineer & technical sales engineer, network administrator, web and database developer before founding Torusoft 4 years ago.
As CEO, he oversees all of Torusoft's I.T. consulting services, and acts as the first and last point of contact for many clients. His passion for streamlining business processes gets him up in the morning, and seeing technology improving customers' lives is what keeps him going.
Ari wrote his first computer game in Grade 8, and has been fascinated by technology ever since. His appreciation of good design compelled him to make the switch to Apple products several years ago. Before founding Torusoft, Ari sought to share his passion for technology in the classroom, working as a high school I.T. teacher in New Brunswick.
As co-founder of Torusoft, he oversees web and app development projects, striving to create the best possible user experiences. He also develops and delivers Torusoft's training programs for Macs, iPhones and iPads in the workplace, to help empower clients with the same tools that empower him.
