About BrothaTech

My passion for gadgets and technology has evolved from a “thing” I do every once in a while to help family and friends, to a blog in order to share my love of all things tech with other techies (and to stop getting on my wife’s nerves), to a brand that helps people and companies “Adopt the Digital Lifestyle”.

Mobile devices and consumer electronics are my heart, but I also dabble in all things technology. I’ve been a tech-blogger/freelance writer covering a wide-range of geeky subjects since 2008. I’m also a technology consultant (I prefer the term Tech Concierge) for individuals, small businesses, and events.

I’ve also been tapped to speak on technology subjects at local event and nation-wide conferences. I even fix smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

…In other words, I’m a certified Digital Lifestyle Expert, AKA:

Whether I’m talking about the latest technology news, reviewing the hottest gadgets, or helping visitors get the most out of their gadgets, you can find it ALL here…Because honestly, I don’t have the time to manage multiple sites. Check out my bio below to find out why.


Terrance Gaines, AKA BrothaTech, has been interested in technology ever since he can remember. It started when Terrance and his brother shoveled snow in the winter to make enough money to buy video games for their Nintendo Entertainment System. His tech roots also include working at an electronics store selling Audio/Video gear to make extra money during college.

In 2008, he decided to share his techie background and unique writing skills, and created BrothaTech.com, a personal blog where he discussed technology trends and topics and reviewed gadgets he was interested in. His blog has been recognized by the Black Weblog Awards and the Small Biz Influencer Awards in 2011 and 2012. He has also been a guest on many podcasts and radio shows as the resident “techspert” giving listeners the lowdown on current and future technology trends.

Via BrothaTech, Terrance has worked some of his favorite brands including Verizon Wireless, Sonos, Samsung, Kensington, Evernote, and more.

Shortly after, he started his freelance career and has penned technology articles of various subjects for Black Web 2.0Small Biz Go MobileThe Atlanta Post (now Madame Noire)AppScout (A PC Magazine blog)Black Enterprise, and Uptown Magazine, in addition to guest posting for many other sites.

Terrance has expanded his services from a tech blogger/pundit, to a recognized speaker where he has presented at various local events and national conferences including Chocolate Chat Atlanta MeetupShow Me the Blog Social Media ConferenceHispanicize, and Blogging While Brown Conference to name a few.

Terrance hasn’t stopped at merely attending and speaking at conference and events. The consulting arm of his brand includes events where he is the Technology advisor for the the nationally-recognized (and his favorite) Blogalicious Conference. Future projects include his own weekly podcast and hosting technology events in the Metro Atlanta area.

Terrance has stayed true to his gadget roots, and moonlights as an gadget repair specialist. All this while holding down the fort as a devoted husband and father of two of the cutest girls you will ever see in Atlanta, GA.

BrothaTech.com remains the virtual home for Terrance where he still loves to talk about about his favorite gadgets, apps, and other tech topics, while helping visitors “Adopt the Digital Lifestyle”.
