Brady Helkenn, Owner / IT Consultant

I started my formal training to fix computers in 2007, got my first job in 2008, and have been running my own business since 2010.

I’ve earned various Microsoft and Apple certifications during the past 9 years, including:

  • Windows 7 Optimization
  • Mac OS X Lion troubleshooting
  • Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA)
  • A+ (hardware troubleshooting)
  • Network+ (network protocols and troubleshooting)
  • Security+ (security algorithms, best practices for computer security)

I’ve helped migrate entire companies to new phone systems, email systems, and set up brand new offices. I’ve supported hundreds of people with their IT needs. I’ve solved problems ranging from a crashed hard drive to a Chromebook refusing to connect to an Apple router. Through all of these experiences, the one constant I hear is “Good thing you’re in my life. I would have never been able to figure this out on my own.”

I believe in taking away the stress of technology wherever I can. Struggle less by turning to the right professional for help.

Outside of work, I play piano, go hiking every now and then, try new restaurants, and am admittedly a Trekkie AND a Star Wars fan.

KJ Beranek, IT Consultant

I grew up in a small town in Montana and through a series of random coincidences, I ended up in (sometimes) sunny California. At 16, I placed in the BPA nationals for Windows Networking and Operating Systems. This ended with me securing an internship at my school. After high school I joined the U.S. Air Force and was the sole in-house IT technician for a network of 280 PC’s. I’ve deployed to Baghdad, Iraq and Cameroon, Africa. Someday I will pursue my mountaineering passion in Sweden.

Geo Camargo, IT Consultant

In addition to hands-on training and self-teaching methods, I am also Mac OS X certified and currently pursuing Network+ and Microsoft certifications.

I've always had a high interest in the tech field, ever since the first time I even heard of Dial-Up internet and HTML. I remember when I used to work in hotels as a front desk clerk I would inevitably become the go to guy when it came to network and computer issues for customers and my employers alike. I realized I enjoyed helping others figure out these puzzles. I have also always enjoyed coding websites on my own time. I've learned HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in my earlier years for that purpose. It can be a very creative and rewarding activity.

When I'm not glued to my computer, I like to practice Muay Thai kickboxing, indoor bouldering, and video games. I love video games. Also, I enjoy bartending. I come from a hospitality background and I found a passion and creativity for mixology, something that, just like the tech field, I continue to learn from and enjoy.
