“Never Give Up! Never Surrender!” Tim Allen
A Nerd with a Personality. Having come into the Networking and Server world through small medical practices I gained a unique perspective on technology. I had trained and studied codding while in college and then began working for an Ophthalmologist and surgery center. Quickly I learned that no matter how cool the latest technology was it was not being implemented unless the business budget allowed. This perspective continued through mid sized and regional medical providers I worked for. Yet there were many useful technologies that very large companies were leveraging to be more efficient and gain an advantage. It became a passion of mine to find these technologies and find ways to bring them in reach of the small and mid size companies I worked for. This led me in 2007 to start my own company. It is now a personal mission to serve people with a local “Mom and Pop” style customer service but bring “Corporate” level tech to them.
