About Us

Started in 1999 at the end of the so called “internet bubble”, the focus on results as opposed to technology for technology sake was a welcome approach by our customers.

Initially taking “service calls” of all types we learned in short order that in order to provide a personalized level of service we needed more dedication by our customers to us so that we could show our dedication to them and our service agreement was born. It’s not a lengthy “no way out” contract but a determined set of time with the idea that seeing the same person in a flexible schedule has a positive result over rolling the dice with company after company for tech service.

This personal level of service and success allowed us to ride out the down turn in tech and emerge with even more services for our customers benefit.

Darren Simon - Founder & Chief Technologist

Born in Florida and raised by a father that served in the United States Air Force, Darren graduated from Klein Forest High School in north Houston & immediately followed his passion by pursuing a job at Radio Shack. There, Darren was introduced to BBS systems and the command prompt (a daily part of his life ever since!), That same year he installed his first office computer system professionally, followed by his first key switch phone system. Rather than immediately accept a position as a computer center manager, Darren followed another passion by attending the University of Texas Film School. There he paid his way through school as an independent photographer using skills honed through years of practice and also founded a graphic design business.

After college Darren again began privately consulting on IT systems and spent five years in a support position at an Austin practice management firm. His entrepreneurial spirit once again took hold in 1999 and he founded officecomputer.com , the same business he operates today. Serving a wide range of Austin businesses, Darren created his company with the idea that technology is personal to each client and the support he provides will be tailored to its owner. By 2007, officecomputer.com had grown to support 40+ businesses and today boasts more than 80 clients that depend on Darren's services.

A love for technology, a passion for helping others and a determination to allow people the freedom to decide how it is they want technology to work for them - these are the fundamental ideas that motivate Darren. In his daily approach to work, he recognizes the great fortune to have a career that is both his hobby and passion. Darren sees Technologists as one part doctor, one part lawyer and one part best friend. Trust, honesty and integrity are all key factors in helping his clients make the right choices and leverage the best from the evolving technology that is modern computing systems.

David Sutton - Senior Technologist

Born and raised in Alaska, David enjoyed the great outdoors in the summer and huddled up to a Commodore Computer during the long Alaskan winter. David earned computer science college credit while attending Ketchikan High School, graduating in 1991. He then attended the University of Alaska for his freshman year of college. Feeling “cooped up” with all the other “Sourdoughs” in Alaska, he packed his bags and joined the US Air Force with dreams of seeing the world. There David was plunged into a yearlong vigorous electronics training in Aircraft Avionics. Upon graduating tech school - which was a challenging, life-changing experience - he was stationed in Osan, Korea. Other station assignments included; Anchorage, Alaska, Okinawa Japan, Singapore, and Moscow, Russia. During his five years of honorable service, he earned 2 achievement metals. One was for creating a parts inventory program for the Pacific Air Command. Previous to this, everything was done manually on paper. The second metal was for being instrumental in helping the Squadron earn an Outstanding Squadron Award, a rare Air Force Honor.

After being honorably discharged, he moved back home to Ketchikan, where he ran a popular computer hardware/software website called Generation3D. During that time he attended several trade events like the E3 Expo in Los Angeles, following his passion for technology. During this time, David started a computer consulting business with a partner; Northern Dynamics. While the experience was great, business was challenging in a bad local economy and David returned to aviation and went to work for Aero Services. There he gained useful customer service skills and managerial skills which lead to a position at Advanced Communications.

In 2008, David and family moved to his spouse’s home town of Austin, TX. Almost immediately, he went to work for Carroll Systems as their Lead Service Tech. During that time he has done work for many of their commercial clients; IBM, Verizon, AT&T, Century Link, Sprint, HP, BAE Systems, to name a few. David also worked with with many of their Governmental accounts such as the Veterans Administration, IRS, Social Security Administration, DEA, FBI, and Military. After 8 years with Carroll, he returned to his IT “roots” taking a Senior IT technician position with officecomputer.com , LLC.

Technology has always been a passion for David. An avid gamer since 1980, he tunes his PC for optimal performance in his spare time. His best talent is explaining highly technical topics in easy-to-understand, everyday language. His technical experience is very diverse across the technology spectrum and he brings an Alaskan work ethic of perseverance and self-reliance to every task. His core belief resides in a “never say quit" mentality grounded in trust and honesty.

Dennis Stein - Junior Field Technician

Born and raised in New Jersey, Dennis has had a passion for technology since the age of 12. Tinkering and rebuilding computers recycled from his father's CPA firm helped feed this intrigue for electronics and computers . After graduating from Ocean Township High School in New Jersey he took a job at a local supermarket and began seeking a career with the military.

Mom being the biggest hurdle to over come on that front, in July of 2012, Dennis could not hold back any longer on his dream of serving his country in the U.S. Army and he enlisted.

The Army sent him to Fort Benning Georgia for basic training then he was off to his Advanced Individual Training for his job as a Signal Support Systems Specialist at the signal school at Fort Gordon, also in Georgia. From there the Army stationed him at Fort Drum in upstate New York with the 10th Mountain Division where he worked for the first 10 months as a communications representative at a help desk taking trouble tickets, which included occasional field technician work.

Shortly thereafter, he was promoted to a Communications NCO. He took on the responsibility as a full-time field technician, including 80 personnel. His major accomplishment in this time was fixing their faulty BFT Satellite GPS communication systems. Only 4 out of 16 were operational upon arrival. Within a month, all 16 were operational after all the troubleshooting and replacement equipment had been aquired and put into operatoin. He went on to maintain all their radio and satellite communication systems for the next 2 years.

After completion of his active duty service and receiving his Army Commendation Medal and Honorable Discharge he transitioned back to civilian life and took a 4 year contract with the Texas Army National Guard. It was at this point he and his wife decided to take a risk and move to Austin, TX with ambitions of beginning their careers in their respective fields of work. His wife is in the nursing profession with a local major hospital. They currently live in North Austin with their dog and look forward to buying a home in the central part of the city and continue to pursue their dreams.
