My Focus



For 3 years I've been in the IT Business. Like most I started out doing consumer tech. Taking off viruses and cleaning up computers so they can run faster. It was something I thought I had to do since coming out of Robert Morris College IL (Now Robert Morris University IL) I didn't get a corporate job. I knew I needed to stay sharp but a degree in networking isn't equal to me removing viruses and cleaning computers.

 I started to attend workshops and seminars not only to get noticed but to increase my knowledge in IT. I knew I needed to get in the door somewhere soon before I knowledge got stale.

When I moved to Columbus OH, I worked hard to get my foot in the door, I was always showing up at tech placement businesses trying to keep my face fresh in peoples minds. I almost made it if it wasn't for the fact of me not taking care of my health and becoming ill. I ended up in the hospital for 2 weeks and had to go back to Chicago.

Back there I didn't know what to do so I thought hey I did all that work in Columbus to get noticed why not here, but it wasn't the same. I was lost in the hordes of people, some with major connections. I was depressed and worked a while in a couple places. In the end my health came back into play as I had a car accident because of my untreated sleep apnea. So I quit, still doing consumer tech on the side I decided to take the leap of faith and start an IT business.

Now here I am three years later. Now I'm in a spot where I need to move forward or I'll be on my quest to do something else again. I refuse to be in that situation again. I have moved forward to build a reputation, to work with organizations and to help teach. Since I've always been a stickler for being safe and secure. I'm going to focus my efforts in keeping consumers and small businesses safe. Yes, cyber security. So when you are ready to set up encryption for your email, when you are ready to set up a vpn, when you are ready to secure that device so that you aren't a victim of data theif. Come talk to me.
