Tech Talk America & David A. Cox:
A Brief History
I first started Tech Talk America in 2011 from what was previously a laundry room. It has changed a lot over the years and I wanted to share a little bit of that history with you.
Back in 2010, I was working 80+ hours a week at my local Apple dealership, teaching classes all over Cape Cod, and making house calls either before or after work. Over time, word started to spread that I had a knack for teaching technology to people who did not identify themselves as being “tech savvy.” Eventually, that job ended and I decided to try going into business for myself.
To this day, I consider that to have been the best decision I ever made.
The process of becoming an entrepreneur set me free; not only financially, but creatively. Suddenly, I had the freedom to create the business that I wanted to run on my terms.
When I started Tech Talk America, it took some time to discover the format that worked best. It started off as a podcast on iTunes, then briefly a semi-private online lesson service (under the name PC Classes Online which was featured on ABC’s Shark Tank) and then finally, a YouTube channel.
I settled on YouTube as my platform for many reasons; It was an established social network that millions of people already used and I was able to upload content whenever I wanted. One of my favorite things I enjoy doing is working with other YouTube content creators to help them grow their channels. I have learned a lot in the 7 years I've been doing this stuff and it is such a joy to help others grow their creations. Book a YouTube Consulting Session with David.
While I have had people assist me with my channel over the years, at this point I run every aspect of production by myself, and still from home. This would freak out a lot of people, but for me, it’s a fun creative process that I look forward to every day.
A few years ago I started a little creative project under the name of “Droning Provincetown” which has since evolved into something much larger than I originally anticipated. This project combined a few of my other passions and talents including directing, video editing, choreography, and of course… drones.
If you’ve never been to Provincetown, Massachusetts… it’s a pretty unique place. Located at the tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown has the distinction of being where the Pilgrims originally landed back in 1620 before settling in Plymouth, MA. It also happens to be one of the most LGBT friendly places on Earth. I try to capture this town’s many different faces in these videos. Here are just a few of them.
