From the time he was an 18-year-old rock ‘n’ roll drummer, when he used Digital Performer to do sequencing and sampling on his PowerBook, to his current career, for which he uses Archicad and other programs on his 17-inch MacBook Pro and 20-inch Cinema Display, Rojkind has relied on the Mac to help bring his ideas to life.

As usual, Rojkind was a bit ahead of the curve. “When I was starting, there wasn’t one architect in Mexico using the Mac for architectural design,” he points out. “Today, more and more are Apple users. For me, I just love the Apple environment. Working inside a Mac is where I want to be.”

He happily totes his laptop to lectures and teaching gigs around the world and gets a kick out of converting the uninitiated. “At first,” he laughs, “I take out my MacBook Pro and people are shocked. They ask, ‘Do you think our projector will work with your Mac?’ And I say, ‘Of course it will!’ Or they ask, ‘Oh, you’re using a Mac… what do you run on it?’ And I say, ‘Whatever I want!’ I love to break down the myths.”
