One of my favorite t-shirts reads:

"I'm here because you broke something."

The journey to this logo

The journey to this logo

I started my career at a very young age. When I was 8 I started working in my dad's photoshop in exchange for TinTin comics that he'd buy me. From there on, once I saw Apple's famous Think Different ad, I realized that I don't want to only use computers and I started learning programming on a very low budget dial up computer that often crashed every time I wanted to compile something...

Anyways, it's been a long time since then, after exploring IT and programing, I am now working for GeekSquad as a Sr. CIA.

From July 13th 2017:

"Today I had the pleasure of visiting a computer repair facility so enormous that our founders rightly named it its own CITY! This is the GeekSquad City.
Here are some fun facts about the hub of our hardware repair center: GSC is the largest computer repair site in the world, and the only one that has certified repair agents by all major brands. Here we repair ANY brand of computers regardless of its form factor (laptops, desktops, all-in-ones, and more) that comes our way. The 250,000 square-foot facility houses over 1,500 agents and support personnel. UPS trucks begin unloading boxes at 5AM everyday, on average GSC receives between three to six thousand units that get repaired as quickly as possible and shipped back to local precincts for clients to pickup or even directly to units’ owners!
Also, a very special thanks to Agents Charlie Smith and Justin Heart for taking the time to show me around."
