Marcia “Marc” Ruf

Marc has a background in Tech Law and international Intellectual Property with a US Juris Doctorate (IP concentration) and an AU Masters of Research (comparative online Copyright law and policy). She loves puzzles, so is a whiz at all things administrative and organisational.

Her undergrad degree included a Biz administration minor. She has obtained her Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt in cost cutting and process alignment. She is especially good at contract analysis and regulatory compliance and can assist small businesses in ensuring that their software suits and administrative processes serve them as appropriate tools rather than task masters.

Trivia: Marc is a skilled English longbow Archer


  • Generates random passwords
  • Never allows name to be used in passwords
  • Director of naps
  • Model for photo editing classes as well as other How-to posts.

As much as we would like to have KittyNinja in the workshop she is not ESD (Electro Static Discharge) compliant and could actually harm a computer due to static shock. She is not happy about this.

Trivia: Kittyninja is so security conscious that “Kittyninja” is not even her real name.

We work and live in Lithgow

We moved to Lithgow just after the last fire was put out, in the middle of the first floods and 6 weeks before COVID-19. Once the plague came to town, the tech shop he worked for shut down and Kevin was made redundant. During his panic to find another job he noted that there was not a shop within a two-hour drive that has his level of skill with Apple systems. After some careful planning, Marc and Kevin decided to open MacMason providing training & repair services.
