Ed, the second Ed in our office here, is a lifelong Center City resident who appreciates Philadelphia's overflowing cultural offerings. His career has had a consistent theme of helping clients extend their knowledge to run and enhance their businesses and personal skill sets. Appreciating the scope and sophistication of the software tools available makes Ed doubly committed to seeing his clients maximize their use and proficiency. Beyond work, Ed's commitments include refining his first serve so that it can't be seen let alone returned, pondering why he didn't start yoga 20 years earlier, and hoping to resolve the eternal mystery of why leftovers taste so good.
