IT Services:
iPhone Data Recovery:

If you are able to login into the phone, we can recover the data. All of the basic Apple technologies are within control: text messages, voicemails, contacts, notes, browser history, calendar items, What's App data, bookmarks, app data, emails, tasks, and settings, photos & video.


Remote Virus Removal:

In my experience, the default malware protection software that ships with a PC is wholely inadequate for the task. Most of these Anti-virus service providers spread their faulty software through licensing programs with computer manufactures and they piggy back on other more sought-after software. McAfee is the worst and most notorious offender, followed by AVAST, both of which are, in my opinion, useless. Norton Antivirus does a better, but still inadequate job, while consuming vast computer resources. For $84/year, we recommend a vastly superior anti-virus software suite that will protect your system in real-time as you surf the internet.

PUP Malware Removal, WeKnow, gandcrab, rootkit, fixmestick, trojan, elex, brontok, cobalten, neshta, fivto, sophos: the grand list of them can be removed with the right tools. The right tools don't come pre-installed, but from a skilled technician. I can also remote pc into your computer to avoid physical contact.

Disaster Recovery:

What would happen if one of your hard drives failed? Boom! Everything is lost. Just like, snap!, that! Do you back up your data? If so, you're smart and prudent. If not, you have to safeguard your investment. All of the time and money that you have devoted to efforts on your computer, will probably disappear if your hard drive fails.


How often some of them fail makes you think of it, like, an insurance policy. I hope you keep a fire extinguisher somewhere, right? A scheduled backup is the same idea. It doesn't intrude from day to day, except when everything fails, it saves the day. We have the tools and experience needed to recover your lost data, but also protect you from future calamities against your systems. I only use the best backup software for the job.


For a one-time-purchase of $40 & $18/month for 1 TB of scalable, encrypted, cloud-based storage, you can save your crucial business files and databases from fire, flood, tornado, looters, and 99.999% of all known calamities. These cloud backup services offer instant, online backup, affordable computer solutions for your data backup.

Network Support:

We design your network or take over from another vendor. New subnets, entire new domain or topologies, Cisco routers, home routers, changing DNS settings: whatever the task, we have the expertise to take care of all of your networking problems.

Help Desk Support:

This support comes in several forms: telephone support, email support, remote support and on-site support. All support is charged at stated rates.

Procurement & Computer Application Programming:

This service is much more bespoke in terms of what I can provide. If you have a computer application that needs to be updated or re-engineered, call us! My skill set is vast in this area, and I have a team of trusted resources that I can call upon for your hardware & software needs. Again, I have the IT services and solutions that you need to arrive at cheaper, faster, better.

Managed Services:

Proactively protects from ransomware and malware attacks with a three-layer approach web- filtering, real-time protection, and cloud-based backup. I'll provide the IT support so that you can provide for your customers.


Biography:
<

1 ...start
🏫
I first started to use computers in 4th grade, at my elementary school in 1981, in California. It was an Apple ][ on a wheeled cart, with a tv on top. I learned the basic computer maintenance of the day.

I was bored with school. If I got detention, then I was allowed to use the computer during the 1 hr. long detention after school. So, day after day, I'd get detention so that I could use the computer.
2 Apple][
🖥️
I was programing a Defender video game clone on the Apple. I used an Audio Tape recorder, with Audio Tapes as my hard drive. The audio tapes sounded like the squeal of a fax machine. At that time, for me at least, it was difficult to tell the difference between work or play in my process of doing things.
3 NYC/NYU
🎥 📺
I hadn't planned to work in the computer industry. I earned a BFA in Film & Television Production from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. I thought that I would do CGI and computer animation in the Movie and TV
industry.
4 Sony Imagesoft
🎮
Upon graduation from university, I almost immediately started with video game creation for the launch of the Playstation with would come out the following year. Moving from video
technician to game designer to producer 16 people were creating a game I had designed back when I was 11 years old. Unfortunately, another PC game, Descent came onto the market, and it was a much less elaborate
version of my game with the identical game play. So, as those things go, fall back and regroup.
5 TSI "Reverence"
🎮🎨
Next, I designed a PC game called Reverence for the PC. Initially, I was hired to design 1/4 of the game levels. However, 2 other designers proved to be bad designers, and I was called upon to completely rework the other two designers set of levels. I was also eventually tasked with designing the intro environment as well. So, overall 4/6 of the sets of environments. Again, Ultimately, this game also fell to publishing issues beyond my pay grade, eliminating it from sales. This is a common occurrence in the video game industry and a reason so many workers leave the industry.

7 ...escape LA
🏄🏻‍♂️
Living at the time in the mid-90's in Los Angeles, it seemed like Redmond or the Bay Area were the next logical step in my career.

As a California native, by that time, I had seen enough of CA for a while in my life. We moved to Seattle with eyes on Microsoft.
8 Microsoft
🚝
Securing a job at Microsoft, in the Exchange Server Group was not my ideal target: The newly created Xbox Group. Later at an internal interview, I described my ideal game to be more like Minecraft, while they were looking for my First Person Shooter experience, which would quickly become Halo, a game devoid a style, like it was designed by committee. By the time I interviewed for the xBox group, I had already had my fill of every type of FPS-type game. Raised on endless PC FPS games from Doom to Quake, to Duke Nuke'm, my own game, Descent, the other PlayStation Games, the whole FPS genre seemed played out. Which it was, hence, Halo and the AAA-FPS-era took shape in the game industry.
9 Exchange Server
👨🏻‍💻
Missing out on the xBox group, I stayed in the Exchange Group working on the WebDAV protocol which is used in services such as Dropbox, Box, Google Docs, etc. The protocol is what allows for the distributed authoring and versioning of online documents and files.
10 Marriage & Babies
🕊️ 👼
The hours were taking a toll on my life as I had recently wed my GF and my first child was born.
11 Legato-->EMC2-->DELL
🗃️
I shifted my career to a startup in Bellevue, WA working on Backup and Restore Software for Enterprise-level IT systems at Legato. Due to the nature of the software, I developed an elaborate
computer mainenance schedule for the lab computers testing the software.
12 Exchange & SQL
✨ 💽
At Legato, I worked on the development teams for the backup modules for both the Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SQL Server.
13 ...moving to Chicago
🚚🏡
After several releases of the software, and the growing responsibilities of my child, we decided to move closer to our family in IL.
14 Implementation & Maintenance
🏭👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
In IL, I managed the IT systems for a manufacture near my home, where I had the time, closeness to home, and ability to raise my growing family free of worry. This work was straightforward and easy to navigate. Consisting of current operating system updates, regular computer maintenance, and other types of computer maintenance. Sometimes I was programming software, offering it support solutions to end users, building systems, and other A+ type work. When acquiring companies, the correct tech solutions saved many budgets, and saved time.
15 Starting side gigs
🧑‍💻
In 2013, as my children took less of my time, I began to grow my work by open an IL business to earn outside income in addition to my regular job. Something to provide IT services and solutions to friends, associates, and eventually random strangers.

Most of initial work consisted of Web site work: individual clients with small needs. Helping clients out with monthly maintenance needs and other common place maintenance tips were the business of the day.

As time progressed, the job started to include database issues, printer issues, and every possible computer need.
16 Present Day...
🧞‍♂️
In 2016, I left the corporate work for good and continued with this business.
