Meet the wonderful presenters behind our weekly tutorials:

Lee Garrett

Owner and Presenter

Lee Garrett has worked in the IT industry for over 20 years, working his way up from being a technician in a school, through to managing multi-million pound Transformation projects in the UK.

He joined ScreenCastsONLINE as a presenter in 2017, sharing his knowledge of Apple software that he uses to get his work done and in February 2024, took over the reins from Don as the owner, heading up a talented team, dedicated to bringing quality tutorials to you each week.

In addition to this, Lee has worked as a Productivity Coach, delivering workshops in how to improve your efficiency whilst maintaining a healthy work/life balance, and Lee tries to apply some of these teachings into his ScreenCastsONLINE videos.

Lee has also appeared on numerous podcasts, including Mac Power Users, The Mac Show, The Productivityist Podcast, with more to come in the future.

Don McAllister

Founder & Presenter

Following a career in IT, Don founded ScreenCastsONLINE back in 2005. Originally a hobby podcast, ScreenCastsONLINE was one of the very first podcasts to pivot to a commercial entity, pioneering subscription-based content and services. Since then, Don has been a leading figure in the Apple community, and was a guest on many Apple-focused podcasts such as Mac Power Users, MacBreak Weekly, British Tech Mac, and Mac & Forth. He was also a presenter at several conferences including Macworld in San Francisco, The New Media Expo, and even the Mac-themed cruise MacMania.

Whilst still a regular contributor to ScreenCastsONLINE, Don has moved away from the day-to-day running of SCO and has passed the baton to Lee Garrett. This gives him more time to focus on keeping up to date with the latest technology as well as doing more travelling.
