Our Team

Rob Calvert

President & Founder

Building on a background in production management and customer service for the publishing and pre-press industries, I have over two decades of experience working with creative and IT professionals in Southern California. I’ve been an active member of the Apple Consultants Network for over 15 years, regularly teaching and sharing knowledge with the local consulting community.

In 2003, out of a gut-driven certainty, I founded the technology-consulting firm, Second Son Consulting. I knew, against all that I had witnessed, it was possible to create an IT-services company focused on helping small-to-medium business owners make pragmatic and long-term decisions about technology, while also built out of honest, hands-on, and educational service that would nurture a longstanding relationship with each and every client for years to come. Fast forward 15 years: we continue to proudly serve those same clients that first stepped through our doors, as well as the many that have walked in since—my original vision remaining at the core of the business today.
