Hi, thank you for reading The Disgruntled Tech. This site was started as a way for myself to vent and post stories of my sometimes unusual experiences while working in the computer repair industry. However, after sharing it with my fellow techies, ideas started flying everywhere and they have since become a reality.

Today, I am proud to say that The Disgruntled Tech is hard at work to bring you news, reviews and articles on today’s hottest and newest gadgets and gizmos.

Spend some time on our site and read through our great articles to learn what is to come in the realm of technology or sit and read our blog for a few laughs of maybe face palms. If you are seeking answers, hop on over to our forums where you can ask away at your heart’s content and get responses from a team of experienced computer technicians and gadget junkies.

So what about me?

I am a computer repair technician and have been for almost five years now. However, I have been a tech addict for most of my life. I got my start as a child when my first computer that I owned gave out on me and was forced to learn how to fix it myself since we could not afford another. Taking apart that casing was exhilarating. That’s when I knew that I was destined to spend my life dismantling electronics to understand how they worked.

My first technical job was in the cell phone industry where I was a sales representative. Learning the inner workings of every mobile phone quickly drove me to become a repair technician for a mobile phone carrier.

After spending a couple of years there, I set off on my own to tackle computers. I decided to set up shop in my own bedroom to allow me to spend more time with my new family. I spent years at that desk working with computer repair, graphic design, simple coding and other small electronic repair jobs.

Currently, I now work for a great company and love my work. I still devote most of my free time to helping other understand the geeky world of computers by making tutorials, answering questions on forums and sometimes even hosting classes.

The Disgruntled Tech is the perfect portal for me to do all of that in one place and I am excited to know that I have readers like you!

So once again, thank you for your support, and enjoy your stay!
