Danny

I’m from Los Angeles, CA. My family and I moved to Washington in 2010 to find better jobs and opportunities. After high school, I worked retail but in 2017, I discovered the world of IT/AV. I’ve been passionate and eager to continue my exploration ever since – to gain knowledge and use it to move up to different opportunities. I’m humbled with all the blessings I’ve been given. For that, I am grateful. I speak English and Spanish.

Sally

Hello all! I discovered my interest for IT in 2017 when I joined a one-year program called Year Up. This program allowed me to be hands on with hardware and software as well as gaining more professional skills to ensure I provide you with the best customer experience. My hobbies are being a foodie, traveling and hiking. I speak fluent Vietnamese. I hope to provide you with the best service I can as to my knowledge.
