About Us

The authors of How Computers Do Math and the creators of the DIY Calculator Clive (Max) Maxfield and Alvin Brown are both eminent in the computer and electronic arenas, although Alvin was already eminent when Max's eminence was merely imminent.

Max (right) is 6'1" tall, outrageously handsome, English and proud of it. In addition to being a hero, trendsetter, and leader of fashion, he is widely regarded as being an expert in all aspects of electronics and computing (at least by his mother). In fact, Max was once referred to as an "industry notable" and a semiconductor design expert by someone famous who wasn't prompted, coerced, or remunerated in any way!

(left) is a well-traveled English gentleman, being born in Assam India where his father managed several tea plantations. Alvin now spends a large proportion of his time bouncing around the globe orchestrating multinational software development projects with teams spread across America, Europe, and India.
