Read about the manager and where it started. From an early curiosity in technology to the forming of the home computer repair company providing trusted technology support for the community.
Can you imagine a time when the internet, mobile phones & tablets didn’t exist? This was when my interest in technology began. I was given a portable cassette tape player one Christmas. Quite popular from the 70’s until a shift when recordable CD’s were made available in 90’s.
Amazed and curious how this small plastic box could reproduce any recorded sound. So curious, I searched my Dads toolbox and took a screwdriver to it. Opening it up, revealing the box of secrets, I discovered many things. Most surprised by it still working when screwed back together. Since then, my curiosity and interest in technology grew. An experience of taking things apart and working things out led my interest towards fixing devices. To this day, the sense of achievement of fixing anything, takes me back to the tape player day. Let’s just say it was when the Fonz from Happy Days was considered cool.
The manager, Steven King has always had a keen interest in technology with all job roles having close links towards it. Growing up watching TV shows such as Magpie, How & Tomorrows World, learnt how things worked and was amazed with upcoming technologies. Enjoy watching the Gadget Show and BBC’s Click to gain access on new tech and an avid movie buff.
A keen DIY enthusiast always working on home improvement projects with biggest project of a fitted kitchen with most DIY jobs tackled. When tools are downed, he likes to have a complete break from the technology and visit the Lake District or Snowdonia. Walking up a mountain, through a forest, downstream or canoe over a lake, taking in a lot of Vitamin N – nature.
About Career and Experience
I started my career in college for 3 years in Electronic Servicing and worked for an alarm company on a production line. Working up to technical manager testing, servicing and designing alarm systems. The role changed to 24-hour call out which is what I really enjoyed meeting people and fixing their alarm systems. Some years were spent in the electronics field where I developed my fixing skills.
Soon after going back to college in computers, I started work as a school computer technician. It wasn’t long before becoming network manager, I developed my role and diverse tech skills over the 21 years I was there. Managing projects, teams and all technical devices over different school sites, I expanded the knowledge of computers and all related devices and services.
With volunteering roles with RNIB (Technology visitor) and a local walking group (Web & Communications) grew my knowledge further. Working with the RNIB, visiting clients at home, I relived the joy of meeting people, being mobile, and fixing devices.
