“I love relieving people’s technological suffering by getting them back up and running with their computer or device as fast as possible, with a smile.”

— Andrew Gorman, Owner

Andrew Gorman

CEO/President

I started my journey from a small town in south east Wisconsin. Elkhorn was a few buildings clumped in the middle of a sea of corn fields. After high school I packed my bags and headed to the University of Wisconsin in LaCrosse. There I fell in love with the pursuit of knowledge. I studied everything from Asian Philosophy to Modern Physics. I travelled to London for a semester to learn about Europe and the rest of the world. After a quick six years I graduated with degrees in Mathematics and Education. I also completed minors in Computer Science, Physics, and Philosophy. Upon graduation, my girlfriend and I packed our cars with everything we owned and headed out west. We were looking for a city with a ski resort in sight, plenty of rock climbing and mountain bike trails, and water near by. After a couple of months searching we arrived in Bend. The last six years I have been enjoying the finer things in life. I have worked many enjoyable jobs here but I soon decided it was time for something new, and began working with and repairing the Apple products that I had come to love. I have tinkered around with computers for the majority of my life, and Apple products in particular are a joy to use and to work on. I love relieving people’s technological suffering by getting them back up and running with their computer or device as fast as possible, with a smile.

Stephen Patterson

Apple Certified Mac Technician & PC Technician

I was born and raised in Oregon and moved to Central Oregon in 2003. I’ve been working, not playing, with computers since I was just 9-years-old – from the Tandy 1000, 8086 and beginnings of AMD K –series and Intel Pentium series. Building and tweaking PCs were my version of playing with Lego’s.

In 2008, I became an Apple Certified Macintosh Technician (ACMT). I enjoy the outdoors, bicycling, hiking, camping, archery, shooting, driving, building custom PCs. I have two little boys: Mason & Brody.

 

Peter Casgar

Apple iPhone Professor

I’ve been living in Bend, Oregon since 2004. Moving here I quickly fell in love with Bend’s laid back attitude and the great outdoors. When I’m not fixing iPhones you’ll find me out at Smith Rock or up at Mount Bachelor. Snow is what brought me to Bend and the people, adventure, and breweries is what has kept me here.

I’ve been working with iPhones since 2010. I am a closet technophile who has found intrigue in the genius behind Apple products. I am amazed at the convenience and simplicity our iPhones and computers have brought us today and I understand how important these products are to our daily lives.

It brings me great satisfaction to help clients with their iPhone needs. Whether you have a cracked screen, draining battery, stubborn home button, we’ve got you covered. We will get you back up and running within about an hour.

If you see me up at the mountain or Smith Rock or even out at the pub please say hi. I promise not to hit you up with “tech” talk.

David Kowalski

MCSE Certified Windows PC Specialist / Business Development Manager

My wife and I relocated to Bend from Sonoma
and Marin Counties, in Northern California, where I owned and operated three separate computer service businesses. I attended College of Marin and Sonoma State University for Business Administration

I am an MCSE certified windows technician with 27 years of experience. I have also worked closely with all Mac devices during that time. My expertise is in small to mid-sized business management; networking, printer and file sharing, wireless, security, troubleshooting, antivirus protection, cloud services, data backup and recovery, server management and maintenance.

I have always enjoyed the challenges of working with computers as I have a passion for troubleshooting and problem solving.  My fascination with new technology is a never ending learning opportunity and allows me the satisfaction to quench my curiosity for knowledge.

I am an avid sports enthusiast and love to play soccer, tennis, golf, pickleball, table tennis, wallyball, kayaking, bike riding and hiking. Soon to get back into skiing. My wife and I feel that Bend was an excellent choice for our future and look forward to many years of experiencing all that Central Oregon has to offer.
