“Erik Madsen is a thorough, trustworthy and knowledgeable Mac specialist. He has bailed me out of disaster numerous times, and I would recommend him to anybody!”

critical areas: repair, software support and strategy. Dependable, knowledgeable and creative,
MacAlchemist is the gold standard of Mac support organizations.”
- Jim Hamm, President Color Incorporated
“Erik has been a consistent source of consulting and peer review for security and IT systems issues. He
has worked on multiple projects since the 1980’s and has always delivered on time and on budget. I can
recommend MacAlchemist for your most sensitive issues.”
- Mike Jenkins, Salina.Net
“Erik from MacAlchemist rocks!!! Nobody out there knows Macs and Mac software better than Erik, bar
none! His service, outstanding! Communication and follow through, terrific! Rates, more than reasonable!
All in all, no one other than Erik and MacAlchemist is allowed to do technical, upgrade or consulting work
on my Macs. No one! If that doesn”t tell you how strongly we feel about MacAlchemist’s work then
nothing will!”
- Adam & Stephanie Zane
“MacAlchemist are the new scientists of the modern age. These guys are like super heroes! I am serious.”
- Phil Jaurigui- President, Swing House
“I’m an independent producer who relies heavily on my personal laptop. Whenever I’ve had any questions or problems, MacAlchemist are quick to respond, efficient in fixing my problems and always right in their advice on how to proceed, upgrade or make any changes that are necessary. I trust them implicitly.”
- Stephanie A. Johnson, Clover Entertainment, Inc.
“In the ever expanding Mac Universe, a person can feel very lost in space when issues come up. Having a life line like Erik makes the journey one that can be made with peace of mind, knowing that there is someone there who knows me, knows what I do, what programs I use most, etc., and can help me and my bandmates stay current in hardware, software and offer a hand in those very rare times when I just can’t get shit to work and I’m ready to toss it off a cliff.”
- Tommy Shaw, STYX/Shaw Blades
“I hate “vendors.” I love “friends.” Vendors overbill you, never work the hours when you need the help, have layers of bureaucracy and pages and pages of rules. Friends bend over backwards to help you. 24/7, on your doorstep when it?s needed without you even having to ask. Friends call to chat when it?s not even about business. Friends help you when you move. Erik Madsen is a friend. Who happens to be damned good at keeping our very complex computer systems up and running. I love “friends.””
- Fred N. Davis III, CEO, Strategic Perception Inc.
