About Me:

I´m experienced, highly qualified, and discreet professional, with excellent references and a broad range of knowledge on the IT arena, from hardware to a component level to software, security and telecommunications.

Beside IT, my hobby is Amateur Radio, Astronomy and fishing and I always try to combine all the hobbies together...quite difficult but enjoyable task!. The idea behind my creation of Insightful Hardware Solutions is to create a niche where many technician fail that is laptop, pc, mac, xbox, ps3, ipad repairs at a component level. I think that many people can fix software issues and even to deal with viruses but when it comes a hardware issue is when most of the people quit and call.
