Some of us knew back in 1995 that there was already a revolution brewing.

I did not start out with a career path as an IT specialist. My first love is cooking. I owned and operated my own Mediterranean café back in 1994. Although computers always fascinated me, even back in 1981 playing with my roommates TRS-80 Pocket Computer writing BASIC all night in our dorm room I did not see the future staring me in the face. Fast forward to 1995 I realized that the evolution of computers and communications was now becoming a revolution of sorts, and I wanted to be a part of it. I sold my Café and bought my first 386 computer and started PC Computers. Teaching people how to use Windows 95 and 3.1 was the first money I had ever made from using a computer. I still teach (for free) today. I’ve never stopped learning and applying since then. I now consider my journey a never ending one, but more of a personal revolution on its own.
