Lee Hayward – Mobile Phone and Computer Technician

I am a qualified computer technician with over 17 years of experience. Computers have been a major theme throughout my life along with electronics and robotics. My fascination began when I was just ten years old with computers such as the Commodore, BBC Micro and Amstrad CPC.  I was interested in how they worked which lead to me to experiment with computer code.  I eventually started to troubleshoot, maintain and upgrade computers during my teenage years.  My skills also enabled me to fix computers for friends and family members.  

During my late twenties I decided to offer my knowledge and computer services to the public by starting a computer business (I.T Solutions Essex).  My business operates from my home workshop based in Basildon, which enables me to keep overhead costs to a minimum.  This is why my rates are slightly lower than my competitors.  Although I have much knowledge and experience as a computer technician, I believe my best trait is my ability to to explain computer issues to customers in such a way that they can easily understand without the technical jargon.  I provide a wide range of computer services including repairs to Desktops, Laptops, Mobile Phones.  As my business is relatively new, I work full time at a company called WCM Europe.  Therefore my business is only open after my day job hours (see contact for more details).

Jamie Slack – Web Designer

I work full time at Ford Motor Company (FMC), planning and carrying out metallurgical sample preparation for forensic investigation of components within the Materials Technology Centre, Dunton.  I first began Ford as an apprentice, learning the foundations of engineering.  I then continued my studies further, achieving a Foundation Degree, then a Beng Honours Degree in Automotive Engineering (2:1).

I believe learning a variety of skills keeps life interesting, which is why I decided to take the new venture of website designing.  Throughout the last six years, I have gained much knowledge and experience in this field.  My technical knowledge and artistic vision are key to producing a clean and modern website, using the latest industry standards.   I am dedicated to fulfilling customer expectations, and providing a high quality level of work.  Please feel free to check out my website design portfolio.
