I started in computers with an Electronics degree back in 1983 when Electronics meant troubleshooting to the component level. An average computer at that time cost around
$10,000. Understanding circuits and troubleshooting was the key to success. Now changing Boards are all thats needed to know. After school I went to work for a Start-Up Company as Production Manager and designed 7 surge protectors that the company patented. I also hold 33 Certifications in HP and OKI printer repair. In 2002 I went back to school for an a Associate of Computer & Networking Degree.
