After handling system administration for businesses across several different industries since 1999, Jeremy Nelson decided it was time to branch out on his own in 2013. He enjoyed the variety of working with different clients each day, especially in the small business niche.
Jeremy found out quickly that the needs were far greater than he could serve alone, so he built a small but effective team focused solely on serving the customer well:

Jeremy has lived in Indiana his whole life. Born and raised in Fort Wayne, he graduated from Canterbury High School in 1995. He received a BS in Computer Engineering at Purdue in West Lafayette. Then, working full-time, he obtained his MBA from IPFW in 2007.
While working in Indianapolis, Jeremy met his wife, Katie, on a blind date set up by mutual friends. They moved to Fort Wayne in 2011 and now have three young children: Joshua, Lydia, and Hannah.
Both Jeremy and Katie have lived overseas and enjoy traveling and spending time with family and friends. They attend Broadway Christian Church, where Katie serves on the missions committee and Jeremy does audiovisual work with the worship team and services the IT needs of the church.
