Welcome to Thurner Consulting. I am an educator, planner, and designer with experience around the world specializing in teaching others how to achieve better problem solving and understanding through effective planning and use of technology.


Web Design

Web Designs range from simple to complex. I will build a simple web site at roughly half the cost of other designers. Contact me for a free estimate. For a recent example SEE:  Waltham Aluminum

Tech Support

Can’t hook up your printer? Your Cable Router is not working? I have been installing and supporting computers, monitors, video projection, networks, etc. for over thirty years. I have very reasonable rates and will provide a free estimate. Contact Me.

Planning and Graphics

I have created strategic plans for organizations large and small, information systems providing understandable and timely data, and graphics that effectively communicate. Educated and supported managers in Qualitative and Quantitative Research and Analysis, Infographics, and Database Design.

Multicultural Awareness

Worked in Japan, Greece, Cyprus, and England and multiple large Native American and First Nations projects. All work is guided by an appreciation of different world views informing development of groundbreaking designs for higher ed governance.
