Expert Week – Who are our Xfinity Forum Experts?
Today we are excited to start “Expert Week” - our weeklong celebration of those unsung heroes of the Xfinity Forum, our Experts. We'll spend this week sharing who they are, highlighting their accomplishments, and giving you information on how you can join the team.
Who are our Xfinity Experts?
Our Xfinity Forum Experts are a group of 9 customers, independent from Comcast, who are dedicated to finding solutions and to assisting our other customers and the Xfinity Forum as a whole. They have been recognized for their high level of expertise, their willingness to assist, and their ability to interact with others in a helpful and engaging way.
These Experts have spent many years in our community actively engaging with other customers. They volunteer their time just for the pleasure of helping others. Although it is not a requirement, our Experts also spend countless hours in the forum assisting our Official Employees. They go above and beyond for customers and can provide insight into what our customers are experiencing, keep us informed of hot topics, and ensure the community continues to meet the needs of our customers.

I have never had any formal training in computers. What I know is self taught and I am pleased to say that I am still learning. Sometimes you can teach an old dog new tricks! I enjoy being able to help others because there was always someone out there on the internet to help me and I feel that if I can give something back, than I am repaying those who helped me! I am a GURU on the Norton Forums. I also enjoy bowling, watching NASCAR and Air Shows.

What I like helping with: Email
Bio: I started in the forums as just another customer, answering questions about email and browsers that I knew the answer to. That went on and off for quite a while. Then I was asked to become an Expert, and I accepted. I have no formal IT background of any kind; I'm just someone who happens to like working with, and learning about email and things related to it. I consider my work in the forum to be the same as any other volunteer work. I was also a volunteer literacy tutor for 4 1/2 years. Originally from Michigan, I am retired and currently reside on the Gulf coast of Florida.
Forum Member Since: 04/2007
What I like helping with: Email, browser and related basic computer issues, and Xfinity Mobile Android.
Bio: I'm a former federal employee, retired since 2008. Got started on the web in the late 90s with a WebTV (later MSN TV). I bought my first computer, a Dell Dimension, in 2004. It had 512 MB of RAM and a 120 GB hard drive and was $1800.00!
I've always enjoyed helping others. I've been participating in various web forums for many years, and have found I tend to respond to more posts than I initiate. I've also learned a lot from answers to questions asked by others. My former job included time spent helping people all over the country. Now I get to volunteer some of my time doing that here in the Xfinity forums as a recognized member of the team.
I love tomatoes and black-capped chickadees.

What I like helping with: Internet Connectivity
Bio: I learned programming languages such as Java, Python, HTML, CSS, PHP. Joined the bandwagon when I started having issues a few years back and made me wonder what makes the system and started my learning process to get as much info possible, but like helping out others. Also, since my father likes to be lazy sometimes, which he does deserve, I become his bridge between himself and Comcast.

Married, currently retired and spend my days hiking/birding around the Sunshine State and doing home projects such as replacing the siding, trim and windows on our home and getting ready to paint the entire house a "Key West" theme inside and out after the roof is removed and replaced! I first came to the forums to learn about Comcast services but my passion for helping others with issues/problems allowed me to get noticed by Comcast and I was asked to be an Expert in September of 2015.
