A LITTLE ABOUT ME...
My fascination with computers started with a Commodore 64k my aunt and uncle (Evelyn and Ritchie), bought for me when I was a kid. After coding for hours on end from old Commodore 64k magazines, I got more and more intrigued (otherwise known as obsessed) with this new technology. From there I moved thanks to my grandparents to a top of the line custom made 386sx (yeah, I know!) and from there to 486, Cyrix, AMDs, and so on.
Since 1991, I've been fixing, troubleshooting and modifying computers for friends, family and also coworkers. This has made me sort of an expert not only with computers but with other electronics, as well as with online and home network security.
Today, I work for the US Air Force as a active duty military member; hold an CompTIA A+ and a Security+ certifications, and have worked as a computer and network technician and IT security manager during my military career.
In 2001, I created this website to showcase my different modification projects (computers, TiVO and other stuff) and to describe step-by-step those projects to help others do the same, but as time went by, it slowly was modified--no pun intended--to include information about my computer repair skills. The name, Modification Workz or "modworkz" for short, stuck and now this website is the Head Quarters of the #1 PC technician in Okinawa!
After joining the military, I continued to expand on my computer knowledge. At one point, I was "voluntold" to learn HTML for my squadron and then became that unit's web designer. My expertise has helped me worked, develop and managed over 20 web sites for different on base organizations all over the world. It also allowed me to complete three (3) commercial web sites and 5 squadron Access databases. The latest version of this website incorporates CSS2 code and a re-designed XHTML 1.0 code. As always, I continue to learn on my own all of my computer interests and continue to improve this website's coding. Currently I am reading and seeking my next certificate on Computer Ethical Hacking (CEH), Network+ and Linux+.
When customers asked me; "how come my prices are so low compared to other computer stores or local technician competition?" The answer is simple...I don't have to pay rent, utilities, etc. And because this is not my main means of making a living, the savings are passed on to you.
Not only that, but I believe that good service doesn't need to be expensive, especially in these hard economic times when we rely on our computers for just about everything. So check around and compare! My prices and quality of service can't be beat.
