“I started HumanITy after having worked in the IT industry for over 20 years. I worked for large consulting firms and saw how technology can increase productivity and streamline processes. I have also seen how those types of technologies seem out of reach to the average artist, entrepreneur, small business, or non-profit.
My goal is to provide the appropriate technology and guidance, at an appropriate cost, to those who need it most. I’m passionate about making it easier for others to share what they love and build their business.”Brian Knapp
I pride myself on communication. I strive to fully understand my clients’ needs and provide the appropriate solution. I have been the IT guru for JulietteCrane.com and The School of Happy Painting, where I work with my wife, artist and entrepreneur Juliette Crane. I have helped her grow into a six figure a year online business by implementing the appropriate technology.
I’m also the co-founder of Business For Creatives, an online business class that helps you grow your online presence and make money from what you create. I’m passionate about making it easier for others to share what they love and build their business. I can help you turn your thoughts and ideas into affordable and easy to manage IT solutions.
“We are extremely pleased with HumanITy and highly recommend them. Brian converted our business to the cloud and tailored it very specifically to our needs. He is very knowledgeable, is easy to work with and does a fantastic job. We couldn’t be happier with the services HumanITy provides and would recommend them to anyone looking for professional IT consulting services.”Sarah Baumgartner, Irongate
“I estimate the changes HumanITy is helping us to implement will save us over 300 man-hours a year by improving many of our internal processes using various services Google is providing to us for free!”Executive Director, CSN
We cannot recommend HumanITy highly enough. We worked with Brian and were completely satisfied. He went above and beyond and his rates were very reasonable. We are not very “tech savvy” and Brian was able to simplify and clearly communicate what was going on and give us practical options for our business. We had a complete server crash and Intel said our data was GONE. We thought we would be down for weeks, but Brian got us up and running the same day. He worked tirelessly and was able to rebuild our server and recover 95% of our data from two time zones away in a matter of a few days. Our customers and employees barely noticed. I can’t thank him enough for helping us stay calm during a highly stressful event. Afterward, he was able to give us some affordable solutions to prevent this from happening again.Dr. Derrick hau, Vancouver Spinal Care
“I really wanted my e-course websites to look professional and be easy to use as both a teacher and student. It was important to me to have the entire classroom, discussion group and photo gallery with one elegant look and log-in. I also wanted more time to focus on the class content and creating new creative projects, so I didn’t want to have to fuss with the administrative side of things. Brian built an e-course website that has all of the customized features I’d been looking for. The discussion group and gallery make it so easy for students to ask questions or share what supplies they’ve used for a painting all in one organized place, which promotes a dialog between me and other students, just like in an in-person classroom.”Juliette Crane, Artist
