What is HumanITy all about?
<h4>Brian Knapp</h4>

“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.”

Why HumanITy?

I pride myself on communication.  I strive to fully understand my clients’ needs and provide the appropriate solution.  I can help streamline the technology you have to not only create a more stable environment, but save money as well. I am passionate about making it easier for others to share what they love and grow their business.

I have also been the IT guru for JulietteCrane.com and am 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.

Helping you find the RIGHT technology.

Cloud Service Consulting

Let me help you leverage the power and reliability of affordable, online application suites.  I’ve helped quite a few clients migrate their entire workflow into the cloud utilizing services such as Google Apps and Amazon AWS.  I can also help take the stress and worry out of backup and disaster recovery planning and implantation.

IT Consulting

I can help you navigate the day to day computer and networking issues involved in running a small business. From simple operating system and network connectivity issues to file & print and more complex software problems. I’ve been in this business long enough to know the skills and secrets to solving those issues in a timely and cost effective manner.

Web Design and Development

My goal is to listen to your needs first and foremost. I also understand the importance of maintaining a balance between design and functionality. I have a very open minded approach regarding technology and design. I understand the needs of artists, entrepreneurs, and small business owners and want to create a website you are excited to show off, but that is easy to maintain!

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.

“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.”
