Timothy Taylor

A typical day dream for Tim consists of the serenity of a burbling brook in some remote wilderness, off the grid, and stripped of technology. An ironic fantasy for someone that is consumed with fascination by all that is electronic. His interest in computers was first peaked as a child. He fondly remembers his mom loading golf off of a 5 ½ in floppy for his sisters and him to play. A few years later, after receiving a custom built tower from a friend of the family, it clicked! With realization that if time and energy was put into it, he could also learn how to build a PC. The initial curiosity soon developed into a quenchless thirst for knowledge. Tim attended Westfield Vocational Technical High School with Computer Networking and Information Technology being his area of study. On top of receiving his CompTIA A+ certification during this time, Tim devoted effort to become proficient at networking. He considers the challenge of being able to accurately diagnose and rectify technical problems a strong suite, and takes pride in being his family and friends’ go to guy for all issues computer related.
