As a teenager, I was involved in computer vo-tech and pursued a college degree in Information Technology. I got into computers and electronics after finding a love of ham radio early in my childhood life. I felt computers were a better fit for me then electronics and enjoyed it much more and wanted a career in the field.
After graduating college summa cum laude I started my first computer business which became a success, I then later reincorporated and branched out into advanced systems architecture including Linux and windows server infrastructure, routing, and security.
After the success of my business, I wanted to pursue a career in technology journalism. In college, I took many classes in technical writing which help encourage my pursuit of technology journalism and in 2011 The Technology Geek was founded.
The Technology Geek originally started as a technology blog but has now branched out into podcasting and video blogging to keep up with the changes time in journalism.
