Owner / Head Coach

I’ve been fascinated with technology my entire life. My never ending quest to learn has made technology the perfect career field with me. I’ve accumulated a lot of projects, acronyms, and jargon over the years. So much so it’s second nature to me.

However,  after two decades of immersion in the field, I came to a realization: Not everyone enjoys technology!

Most of the time it’s because no one took the time to explain it to them in simple terms.

I had been surrounded by technologists my entire career and made the assumption everyone was like us. I was wrong!

I founded Lökwest with a simple goal – to improve your business or life through technology. That means easy explanations, patient coaching, efficient execution, and simple solutions. 

If you’re tired of tech jargon, and “just want things to work” – you’ve come to the right place!


How We Work.

We offer flexible ways to work together.

Book a Session

Are you a person who likes to have someone “in your corner” for that occasional question?  No problem, we’re a phone call away.

Have a small issue, a few questions, or a quick project?  Try an hour session.  Sessions are available via phone / remote support or in person anywhere in San Clemente or southern Orange County.

Special rates available for first time coaching sessions and Senior Citizens.


Conquer a Project

Do you need a few lessons to achieve your goal? Maybe you have a larger business project in mind?

We can help with any project need: planning and requirements gathering, vendor selection, web and social media strategy, development, project management, and more!

We’ve managed projects of all sizes in several disciplines, including: health and wellness, Non Profit Organizations, real estate, home services, consulting, and more.


Learn as a group

Take a session or a project, add some like-minded friends, colleagues, or associates and what do you get?

A great bargain, a great learning experience, and a whole lot of fun!

Get your group together and schedule a “tech talk” on a subject of your choosing at your location!  

Group Presentations

Visit a Volunteer Session

Part of our mission is sharing our knowledge with those who can’t afford sessions. In addition to providing discounts to Non Profit Organizations, we volunteer our time regularly.

You Need Zest!

Meet Zest

Technology should provide interest, enjoyment, and enhanced appreciation for life. We have developed a special program, based on 5+ years of volunteer work with adults at the Dorothy Visser Senior Center in San Clemente.

For the first time in history, there are two generations of older adults struggling to learn technology. We want to help.

Zest is our digital life coaching program geared towards people further along in their life adventure. You have lots of life experience, but you need technical help more than ever!

Look no further. We’ll see where a “zest” of technology can enhance your healthy, vibrant, connected, and independent lifestyle. You shouldn’t have to go back to school, remember more lists, or push more buttons.

Life is short. Stay Zesty!
