Innovating for SoCal creatives since 1992


Back when Apple operating systems numbered in the single digits, MacRescue was already providing Apple consulting services to some of Southern California's most innovative small and medium-sized businesses. Now, more than two decades later, we continue to offer up-to-the-minute IT expertise, and individualized client service to many of those same creative and business professionals.

We trace our long-standing client relationships to more than just technological expertise. With academic and professional backgrounds in creative services and the entertainment industry, we take an individualized approach to your professional requirements, technology needs, and unique workflow. Proactive in our approach to support, we focus on planning and prevention, but are always at the ready for digital triage and rescue. Equally important are our clients' privacy and security needs, which we safeguard with technological sophistication and common-sense confidentiality.

Our clients - a lively mix of independent professionals; designers, photographers and illustrators; graphic design firms, record labels and film production companies; talent managers and screenwriters as well as non-profits - enjoy personalized service tailored to their businesses. We offer flexible options for engaging our services, from hourly "pay as you go" fees, to pre-purchased consulting hours, to dedicated annual contracts.

In addition to experience in planning, purchasing, installing, maintaining and upgrading Apple Mac systems and iOS devices, the MacRescue team possesses multiple Apple certifications. Founder Steve Leebove holds Apple Certified Technical Consultant and Apple Certified Trainer standing; he was the technical editor on Apple’s Pro Training Series: OS X Support Essentials 10.11 & macOS Support Essentials 10.12 reference materials and for more than five years, he has been a speaker at Macworld/MacIT and also a speaker at MacTech. 15+ year MacRescue team member Jon Clough is also an Apple Certified System Administrator.
