Craig Crossman may have started the show, but his resume goes back further. Highlights include a Computer Science degree from Florida Atlantic University, entertaining in Las Vegas, running an Apple store when Apple was still up and coming, and writing a syndicated column for many years. You might say that Computer America is the natural fusion of his passions, and continues to be his creative project. It’s Craig who brings the journalistic and entertaining aspects to the show.
