My name is Pat Scott, and I live in Austin, Texas. I’m otherwise known as "The MamaNerd". Austin has been my home since 1971. I worked for more than 28 years with a state agency, in many facets of Information technology, including technical support for the various networks across the state and desktop computers in employee offices.

After I retired from the State, I worked for a while with a local computer service company, and found I enjoyed working with senior citizens and families a great deal. I enjoy being a bridge between individuals and technology, translating the "technospeak" into real life examples. I am continually trying out new technologies and applications.

My kids have always told me lovingly that I was a real "Nerd", thus the name. I have been told I'm very patient: I have learned a lot from my 4 kids and all my friends and clients! I don't mind going back over things to help something "click" into place.

I like teaching through "real world" examples instead of resorting to technical jargon to explain new concepts and work through technical issues.

I love meeting and getting to work with new people! All of my clients come through personal contacts, referrals from friends, "word of mouth" referrals through existing clients, and from working with my friends and business associates.

I sometimes volunteer with AGE of Austin in their computer lab, teaching classes on Internet Safety and "Getting your Digital Life in Order" (passing on your legacy).

I don't advertise.

I have a public Facebook "Page" that I post on very frequently about new tech developments, problems and solutions.
