Wow. Who am I?
Well, lets try the basic introductions. My name is James Howell. I am a freelancer systems technician and electronics technician, yes there happens to be a difference, in northwest Georgia. I live in the Dalton area which is situated at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains with Cohutta Mountain and Fort Hill State Park to the east in Chatsworth. This area is also know for our greatest export which is flooring. If the flooring happens to be hardwood, laminate, ceramic tile, or carpet, our region is the largest producer in the world gaining our area the title “Carpet Capital of the World”. Now back to myself.
As a student at Gordon Central High School I participated in Youth Apprenticeship to formally start my technology career in 2000. Years before that I had done work with my father building and repairing systems for his friends and members of our church in Calhoun. With participation in this class, and my insistence on its importance I know many people who have interned with the Gordon County Board of Education technology department as part of a curriculum in high school and have been placed in jobs locally.
Later while attending Dalton State College, I took a job placement working for Baron Industries and Schott Glasswerks USA in Tunnel Hill, GA as a technical support technician for three years. Then I took a job with Murray County Schools in Chatsworth, GA as an onsite technical support technician for a year before taking my next step in life. My next step was to leave Georgia to take an assignment in Pennsylvania for Oberg Industries while still working for myself as an independent technician performing circuit level repairs. I worked as a technician supporting some of the most advanced systems in the world in engineering, manufacturing, and technology. 4 years and countless hours and miles of travel later, I returned back to Georgia to take a job with Shaw Industries as a field service technician for almost two years.
After 7 years of electrical systems experience, Comptia certifications, and countless hours of hands on real life experience working with system controls, PCB systems boards, and laptops I decided to start DoubleClickItToFixIt.com to help and service laptops and desktops over the internet. From my start in January I have serviced systems from Germany, Australia, Taiwan, Mexico, and the United States.
