Kathy and Jackson of DoubleSpaces are phenomenal! I am not very tech-savvy, but they identified web solutions for the key items on my to-do list and provided one-on-one instruction in a very non-intimidating and effective manner, breaking things down in a way that even I could understand. They are also lovely people and I felt very comfortable inviting them into my home. I highly recommend them.

Many thanks for the excellent session this week. It was like getting some STP added to my fuel tank. I felt great for the rest of the day! You help people hack through the brush and create a comfortable clearing for themselves in the Tech woods. Working with the two of you was a reminder to me that the tech stuff doesn't have to be stressful and that it can, instead, be very enjoyable! This is a premier, high-quality service – definitely worth the time to try this.

Your coaching was incredibly helpful. In one session, you zeroed in on exactly what I needed to overcome the technical barriers to achieving my goals. You removed roadblocks and gave me quick, actionable suggestions that I could implement right away. You were flexible and solved problems on the fly. I was able to create an ideal, scalable storage solution for my daughter's art projects and get wi-fi for my bike trainer in the garage. Thanks for being my problem-solving heroes!

Kathy and Jackson were invaluable. I was finally able to get over my reluctance to adopt new apps and be more efficient in both my work and home life. They patiently helped me understand, set up and USE the technology in my daily workflow. Even after our session, when I had questions or issues, they figured out customized solutions that really worked for me. And I loved the fact that they were my age and understood the issues I was grappling with. They are AWESOME.

I am so appreciative of Kathy and Jackson's time and expertise. While my husband and I are somewhat techy, we never find the time to sit down and figure certain things out... like setting time limits on wi-fi for our kids. Kathy and Jackson patiently walked me through the process and it was fast and easy to set up. As well, I love the recommendation for a few apps that will make running my consulting business easier. Their ability to dive into a problem or need and then simplify and solve it is invaluable. Thank you!

We have a lot to offer:

A little about us:

Kathy Lee, productivity tech expert

Kathy Lee, M.A.

As an undergrad at Stanford in the early '80s, Kathy used to feed quarters into the broken-down typewriters in the library to write her term papers. Fast-forward a few years: Every dorm had networked Macs, and even back then, Palo Alto was dripping with technology. Immersed in this brave new world, Kathy discovered she had a natural affinity for anything tech.

Since then, she has done deep dives into graphic design, clinical psychology, and web marketing, including 20 years of building websites for corporate clients. The result? A creative techie who can listen really well. Not to mention someone who has a passion and talent for empowering non-technical people with tools and apps that give them a sense of calm and control over their lives.

Kathy's technology expertise spans productivity, business, entertainment, privacy, finance, and so much more. Nothing makes her happier than helping clients tackle problems that have been hanging over their heads, and seeing the relief when clients realize how these tech-inspired solutions will simplify their lives.

Kathy co-founded DoubleSpaces to help, teach, and inspire others. Read more about her on LinkedIn.

Jackson Powell, productivity tech expert

Jackson Powell

In a word, Jackson is a Renaissance man. Classically trained in fine arts, studio arts, graphic design, and computer animation. Versed in advertising, corporate branding, interactive design, and social media marketing. Equally comfortable designing complex web-based applications, mobile apps, and printed brochures. An advocate of sound design and a seamless user experience. He even knows a little Italian from studying overseas in Florence.

The guy knows how to code, too. He has a deep passion for doing the job right, so he’s learned how to build the websites and applications that he designs. Bolt on a shopping cart or troubleshoot a database? No problem.

With this background, you’d think Jackson would be drawn to spending hours in a cubicle, crafting and coding all sorts of interactive experiences. But he has a gift for teaching, helping others, and making people feel comfortable with technology. Clients enjoy his friendly and patient “desk-side manner” as he empowers them to tackle their most pressing problems.

Jackson co-founded DoubleSpaces to give clients relief from feeling overwhelmed by technology. Read more about him on LinkedIn.

We're natural teachers who love to help people learn how to use tech

Our story

Kathy and Jackson began noticing something about their generation who grew up with typewriters (and invariably left double spaces after a period): Friends and colleagues were struggling with the cool tech that promised to transform their lives. Some were overwhelmed and didn’t know where to begin, and others tried a few apps but got stuck and gave up.

No one wanted to spend hours slogging through jargon-filled tech reviews, searching for solutions to the problems they grappled with every day. And they weren’t about to ask their teenage kids.

So the idea of a productivity consulting service for companies, professionals, and parents was born. Imagine an expert – who's also a peer – finding the right technology to fit your needs and teaching you how to use it. Someone who’s a reassuring bridge to all of the empowering (at times, scary) tech out there and wants to give you the tools to succeed on your own.

And those burning questions you’ve hesitated asking your tech-savvy friends? They're fair game with a productivity tech expert who creates a supportive learning environment in the privacy of your home.
