John was very honest about my repair. Told me a price and stood behind that. He fixed my Nintendo Wii quickly and was more than willing to meet anywhere I requested. He was professional and the process was smooth and swift. This was my first experience with Thumbtack and I am very pleased.Aug 8, 2012Verified
John is an independent contractor who provides great service and a decent price. He took as long as he needed to finish the project at the price he originally quoted. Very professional and knowledgeable about what he was doing. If you want the top professional work at reasonable cost, this is your hire.Jul 27, 2012Verified

- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always worked with my hands.since I can remember... Learning basic carpentry and auto mechanics when I was only 6. I used to do my own bicylcle repairs, mods, and painting starting at 7. I began to "tinker"with electronics when I was 10, taking radios and televisions that I would find in the alleys in my neighborhood and repairing them to use for myself. I grew up poor, so this was a way for me to obtain luxuries such as these, without having to pay for them. This is also where I learned platform integration through routing various devices between one another to find a desired effect, surround sound, etc. I picked up computer information system classes in college while working towards an associates in business. But still it was not until 8 years later that I would get into this line of work. Sitting at home, injured from work related labor, I was brainstorming and was just thinking that there was more to life than this. I am customer oriented, am highly mechanically inclined, and work well with my hands, it was only destiny for me to become what I have become and am evolving to be. So I took IT courses with South University and found that all I learned, for the most part I knew and understood. The rest is history.
- What types of customers have you worked with?The most common types jobs that I find myself doing for clients happens to be computer repair and recovery services. Computer viruses are very nasty and can render personal computers useless. I have also been finding myself doing a lot of LCD display replacements. All of have a little mishap in us and display screens often fall victim to us.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Help your service provider with as much information as you can provide, generally consisting of manufacturer's name, product model/model#, and symptoms of malfunct product.
