In 1987, the year Gary Rosenzweig started college,Drexel University in Philadelphia had the foresight to require every student to purchase a computer. Better still, they required that computer be a Macintosh. From the 1987 Macintosh SE with two floppy disk drives and a little monochrome screen, to his current 2009 Mac Pro with two four-core Xeon processors, Gary has always owned a Mac. His Mac was his primary tool used in creating games and websites from 1994 to the present day. But it wasn't until 2007 that he took his love of Macs to the professional level with the launch of the MacMost site and video podcast. At first,MacMost covered Apple news each week. But soon it evolved into a more frequent show with tutorials, tips, news, and reviews.The website grew as well, featuring iPhone games, ringtones, a weekly newsletter, and other features. Gary has also written many books, most on programming using Macromedia/Adobe software like Director and Flash. He lives in Denver, Colorado, with his wife,Debby, and daughter, Luna. Also a dog and too many cats.
