This is my first official post on the new blog. I should introduce myself. My name is James Huegli and I’m the owner of PCMD, Inc. I’m not the best writer but I’m looking forward to sharing who I am through these blogs.
For my first blog I thought I would tell you a little bit about who I am and what my background is. I’ve had an interesting technology journey as of now. When I was young (9-13) I used to spend my days on AOL in chat rooms where I learned to type at an incredible pace. From there I got interested in the internet and computers and what they had to offer. All through middle school and high school I took any technology related course I could.
In my senior year of high school I got involved in Cisco’s CCNA program. At the same time I started an internship at Intel (JF3 if you know Intel). At Intel I was part of the network card department testing network cards and building network card testers for Malaysia. I worked at Intel for a year and a half and took the opportunity to soak up all the wisdom and knowledge that was all around me.
After Intel I went to work for Logical Systems, Inc. – a local audio/video consulting business. There I was put in charge of designing and building audio/video broadcast computers/servers for local city governments (West Linn, Corvallis, Wilsonville). I also designed and taught a custom workflow to local city employees who were then put in charge of these systems. I worked there for several years before I decided that I wanted build something of my own.
I established PCMD, Inc. back in January of 2007 and now I get to combine my two loves – people & computers into a business that has been growing year after year. That pretty much covers it for now.
Thanks for reading,
