Introduction: I'm a Technology Consultant, and I'm the best in the business. I help ordinary people fix extraordinary problems. :-) This leads me to typically helping people with things like: - Establishing an online presence, or improving an existing one. - Teaching people to work with technology so that it becomes fun, and convenient. - I fix computers, phones, tablets and servers. - I can recover data from drives and devices. - I can help protect and secure your network against malware/ransomware. - I can remove viruses from your home computer or office computers. - I also develop applications and write code for software. - I can help you get your website designed. - I specialize in website marketing to help you get found online. - I provide direct website hosting services, with advanced performance management services for high-traffic (1M+ visitors) (and even low traffic) websites. Here are some of my high-traffic clients: CountryNow.com MusicMayhemMagazine.com CTEWebsite.com Go-Parts.com My clients and customers have come to appreciate my direct, hands-on approach, and the fact that my problem-solving approach to things is timely and thorough. Typically, the work I do derives a "why didn't we think of that before?" response from folks when I offer actionable strategies and help with implementation. If you look me up on LinkedIn, you'll see recommendations from real clients and customers I've worked with. I've been involved with technology since 1997, first in the United States Marine Corps, and then after I started my company in 2003. I've helped all kinds of people, and many types of businesses, both large and small. I'm ready to work with you or your company and help you accomplish your goals, or remove whatever impediments (viruses/malware/ransomware) are preventing you from reaching your goals. I love what I do; in fact, I'd do it for free if I had no expenses involved in living my life. I've found my calling, and it always reflects in the work I do with you or your business. Hope to have a conversation with you soon! :-)

We’re a Law Firm based in New York. We had a great customer service experience with Eric. He responds quickly and makes sure you are taken care of right away. He answers all the questions you have and explains them in a way you can understand. He is now helping with the set up of a server. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a IT consultant

OK let me be honest here…he’s is amazing! The Best thing that happened with my website was finding Eric. He is so professional, knowledgeable, text savvy, and thorough. He explains things in layman terms, and cares about Internet security very much. He is a gift! I can’t believe I lucked out this way. The only thing wrong with him is he doesn’t charge enough for his amazing personable service.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing and fee structure is very straight-forward, and depends on the work involved. As an hourly rate, my rate can vary between $75/hour and $150/hour. It just depends on what we're working on and how complex it is. You can always give me a shout for an exact quote right over the phone!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    To get started, we'll have a discussion about what problems you are having and how I can help resolve them for you - or perhaps you don't have problems, but instead need help with specific things like marketing. Whatever is going on in your life or with your business, I'll work with you to help you get to the place you want to be in. :-)

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Most people are shocked when I tell them that I'm self taught and that my interest in technology started at the young age of 9 years old - I was 9 years old in 1989, so that should give you a bit of perspective. I joined the United States Marine Corps right out of high school, learned some systems administration, which further enhanced my skillset, and in 2003 I started my company!
