About Me

Computer Service & RepairPat's PC Repair, which I founded in 2009, is a relatively new business in the Hemet and San Jacinto area, but I have over 25 years experience working on computers. I worked on 286 and 386 computers when they became available back in the 1980s.  Technology has advanced so much since then! I grew up in San Jose, California, which is near the heart of "Silcon Valley."  When I was 16 years old, my father bought me a computer for Christmas.  It was a Sinclair Z80.  It sat in the box for months.  I finally tried using it, and shortly thereafter, I was hooked on computers.  Since that time, I have lived and breathed computers. 

At San Jose State University, I took a number of computer programming classes, including Fortran, BASIC, Cobal, Pascal, APL, Logo and others.  I worked as a hardware computer tech in Silicon Valley for a few years, then went on to the University of California, Riverside.  During my time at UCR, I became more experienced in computer troubleshooting and repair by acting as an informal computer resource person for the Department of Entomology. 

After graduating UCR, a friend and I started a website design and hosting service, called BioHaven.  More recently, for quite a few years, I volunteered my time at the Hemet Public Library as a computer docent.  I assisted the general public with the Internet, word processing, image editing, spreadsheets, and more. I have also taught classes in basic computer skills and MS Word. I have experience in software development, mostly with Delphi, and I spent the late 1990s and early 2000s as a software developer and biologist. 

Currently, I am running Pat's PC Repair, and I am an independent biological consultant.  I am also an instructor for the Sierra DawnWeather Underground PWS KCAHEMET34 Community Computer Class.
