Zachary Armstrong has been working with computers since the age of 6. By the age of 7, Zachary had written his first program. By 12, Zachary had built his first computer. Through his teens, he taught himself various programming languages and built numerous computers. Into his mid teens, he had developed a home network, before home networks were the norm. Through many years of trial and error as well as studying technical documents and manuals, Zachary learned various tricks and skills needed to troubleshoot issues and repair them. A firm believer in recovering systems with minimal data loss, Zachary has learned ways to save computers which many others would have given up on and reformatted.
In addition to being self taught, Zachary has had various real world experiences working for both small and large companies. In the late 90's, Zachary worked for Westbury Camera and Computer as a PC Technician, building new computers, fixing customer’s computers and assisting customers in upgrading their computers. More recently, Zachary was a consultant for SIAC, the technology nerve center of Wall Street. In addition to his daily responsibilities, Zachary developed time-saving programs which ensured the integrity of data given to computer operators.
Zachary received a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2006. He moved to Boston in early 2007 to become the IT Support person at a web-based software company in Boston. In less than six months, he was promoted to a Systems Engineer role within the organization.
