How we got started:
Sam Purkin began professionally providing assistance with Mac computers back in 1989. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Synthesis (based around the 1985 Mac Plus) from the renowned Berklee College of Music (1988), Sam moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in Producing and Composing. His songwriting and computer talents quickly made him the ‘go to’ guy for anything Apple in the Professional recording world. With clients like Trevor Horn, Beck, Rickie Lee Jones & Patricia Arquette, he became known in celebrity circles. He wasn’t just someone who spoke tech, but had his own recording studio and used the gear in the same professional manner as his contemporaries. Clients really loved this as Sam could relate to the day to day issues that came up with maintaining a Mac in the recording environment. He helped his clients with invaluable preventive care, keeping their studios and rigs running in perfect form.
Sam’s wife, Orna, joined him in the business, and in 2008, Sam & Company was formed. Orna manages the business, sets up appointments and edits their soon-to-be monthly newsletter. They now have 7 top computer consultants covering both Apple & PC computers.
Sam & Company was formed in 2008 and now services clients from LA to London. He and his amazing team of consultants always have their finger on the pulse of the tech world to provide clients with the best Apple experience possible. They make using your hi-tech devices a dream. Read Sam’s full bio >>

“The thing about Orna is when you hear her voice, you just want to crawl into her world and get to know her. She has such a clear open sound, no gimmicks, no tricks, just a pure voice. A true song stylist.” Brian Bromberg, producer.
