Hello! I’m Howard Simpson, a 25-year-old Electrical & Electronics Engineer, Computer expert, Blogger.

Moreover, I helped several students in their projects to write coding for micro-controllers. My areas of interest are 'Applied electronics' and 'Micro-controllers programming and interfacing'.

As a Computer expert, I help people to troubleshoot software issues, repair / replace hardware issues by themselves and to use simple softwares for complex tasks. I’m doing this across oceans from my home using Chrome remote desktop.

As a Blogger I help my followers to manage WordPress blogs, optimize SEO, design logos, create animations, customize the look of their themes, secure their websites and ultimately to monetize them.

As a Chartered Accountant, I have been presenting so many mind-blowing presentations. They used to speak for themselves and that’s my secret of keeping my audience engaged. I'm specialized in 'Financial Management' and 'Indian Taxation'.
