As a fan of technology since my early years, I am extremely proficient with most technological devices, from the basic stuff like TVs and DVD players, all the way up to web servers, computer network architecture, and the latest smartphones. I'm a Production Coordinator at Olio Digital Labs, owner of CleverHost, and the co-host of the Canadian Tech Podcast!
