By the early nineties I was considered Kodak's top Mac specialist, with several divisions I'd worked, I was known as the "Mac Guru".
I was a key contact with the Apple representatives in Rochester, attended events at their office and became friends with several of them. They always did a first class job.
While I was in San francisco, I think in 1989, the local Kodak rep, Debbie, arranged a visit to Apple for me. In addition to the main campus, we visited several small buildings spread across many office parks at the time, and I met engineers working on various projects. Quite an experience. Debbie also wanted to introduce me to a San Francisco photographer, who she thought was a brother from another mother to me. And she was right, Steve Johnson and I hit it off immediatley and have been good friends ever since.
