A Bit About Me:

My work with computers began

roughly 15 years ago when I tore an old Windows 3.1 system apart just to see if I could put it back together again in working order (It worked!). Setting out to expand on that I've built a skill set based on these years of experience building and fixing computer systems, replacing parts and troubleshooting various problems for family, friends and for profit.

Computer Repair isn't all though.

I have a number of mainly self-taught web design skills and a number of websites in my portfolio that were all developed with a mixed use of HTML, PHP, some with MySQL databases, CSS and Flash. This very site is designed in CSS integrated in to HTML.

Why Hire Me?

No non-sense honesty, reliability and integrity.

I have 6 years experience employed in the IT field. Responsibilities have included desktop support, hardware troubleshooting and repair, installation and support of software, setup and configuration of wired and wireless networks and extensive web programming. I have experience in all Microsoft Windows operating systems, Mac OS X, Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and Dreamweaver. Programming languages I am familiar with are HTML, CSS, and PHP. I have installed, maintained and repaired MySQL databases.

If I can't do the job you require - I won't lie to you and say I can. I'm honest and up-front with clients/employers from the beginning. If your project doesn't need something, I will say it up front to keep your project on-time and within budget.

I am a fast learner with an eye for efficiency. I am currently a student and have nearly completed my Associates Degree in Computer Information Systems from Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan. I'm a believer in continuous learning both guided and unguided/self-taught.
