She started writing for the high school newspaper, and while she was in college she wrote for the city newspaper, The Cambridge Chronicle. She has worked as a contributor writer for Miami Living Magazine & Mac Directory Magazine since 2009, and has had a blast working on every assigned story. Claudia studied Communication at Boston University, and received her bachelor's degree in 2010. She also minored in Russian and Eastern European Studies. Soon after graduation she moved to San Francisco where she worked at YouTube. Claudia is currently taking journalism classes and getting her Master of Liberal Arts at Harvard University. She also works at InContext Design as a Marketing Assistant, and has freelanced as a copywriter for Talbots, Staples, and Gap. In her spare time, Claudia likes to play the piano, and delight her friends and family with tunes from her favorite movies. Although Claudia has moved around, she never forgets her Peruvian roots, and always plans a surprise trip to see her grandmother. Thaddeus Razdow, A native of Cambridge Massachusetts, Thaddeus Razdow has had a strong interest in science, art, design and technology since childhood. Mr.Razdow currently lives and works as a Graphic Designer in San Francisco. A graduate of Academy of art university's New Media program, his main focus has been logo design, campaign and branding. Recently he has begun work in mobile application development and web design. Writing for Mac directory gives Thaddeus the opportunity to explore the products and devices relevant to his interests and voice his opinions about new technology. Thaddeus's free time is occupied by his lifelong passion for All things automotive. You can often find him getting his hands dirty under the hood of a car, getting competitive at a local autocross, or relaxing with a car magazine. Thaddeus will continue to write for Mac directory, and in the future hopes to apply his writing experience to the automotive industry. Ric Getter arrived on the media scene in the early 70's when nothing could out- gun a motor drive Nikon SLR and a bandolier of Tri-X film. He moved into video, mastering the "preroll and pray" technique of videotape editing, moving up to CMX's and non-linear editing when that came into fashion. Now fast forward to Silicon Valley 1980. He found himself rebelling against the cubicle caverns where he tried to resuscitate old database and Cobol code and burning much of his energy trying to stay out of the 3 piece suite that was trying to replace his Banana Republic photographer's vest. Life in the Valley paid off in early 1984 when a Mac 128 landed on his desk and he's been in love with the system and its descendants ever since. He has since retreated to Portland, Oregon with his Mac-loving wife where he writes, works with computers and still obstinately refuses to completely leave the television business.
