“I’m an independent contractor, so I work from my home and often I’m in need of IT services. I have used Tony for years and am very confident in his expertise to help me with any IT questions or issues. He’s always just a phone call away, and I wouldn’t be able to do my business as well without his services. Thanks Tony!!!”

"My email provider was no longer hosting email, Tony was able to move me to a new permanent provider with all my email, contacts and calendar. I'm a small business owner who has worked remotely with Tony for about 4 years now on various tech problems. He's always quick, courteous and solves any issues that arises. I've recommended him to some of my other collaborators as well. I would give him a 5/5 star review!"
