More About The Guru

Over 25 years ago I broke my dad’s work computer, and he decided to use this as an opportunity to teach me a lesson. He told me it was my job to fix it. I had no knowledge of computers or how they worked at this time. I had to do a lot of research and it took me a few days, but I was able to rebuild the system as if nothing were ever wrong. I learned a lot putting that computer back together, and it was the instigator to a lifelong interest in technology.  

This interest was the driving factor for me to complete my Bachelor’s Degree in Internet and Business Management.  After graduating from St. Helens High School in 1992, I moved to California and wasted no time in starting one of the first internet companies. I moved back to Saint Helens in 1996 and started a local internet company with a business    partner. We were the first company in the Oregon/Washington area to offer Wi-Fi technology.    

My interests have branched out over the years, and have led me to currently build both a telephone and cell phone company in addition to The Digital Guru. The newest developments in technology are a fascination of mine, and providing it to my customers at the lowest prices possible is my mission.
