Dr. Will Johnson is the co-founder and CEO of Geeks4Hire, Inc. He has been actively involved with computers going back into the 1970’s and the “punch card” era, “dumb terminals”, and the first personal computers. During his undergraduate work in the ‘70s he utilized statistical programs to evaluate results from course evaluations across campus. Later, in his graduate work in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, he led efforts in his laboratory to interface existing equipment with computers, and programed in machine language and assembly language. In 2002, in the latter stages of a successful career as a scientist and engineer (see sites.udel.edu\johnsonw for more details) he decided to start Geeks4Hire, Inc. to utilize his skills in computer technology. With the help of his son, Brian, Dr. Johnson has expanded his capabilities to include a wide range of hardware computer technology, from Windows and Mac personal computers, to Linux and Windows servers. Software skills include Word and Excel VBA programming, database manipulation, photo, video and audio file editing, and much more. With his extensive background in engineering, and his decades of experience there are few programs that he cannot quickly utilize. His abilities in removing malware from infected personal computers, and data file recovery from damaged hard drives are skills that clients particularly appreciate. Dr. Johnson relishes new technology and looks forward to embracing the future changes that are sure to come!
