Here's what's going on here.
There's probably more to the story.
In 2003 I started my own company while a student at the University of Missouri – Columbia. It was a computer and technology consultation and management firm with one employee (me). My company grew and helped a lot of small businesses grow. In 2015, my company expanded into Gravity, Columbia’s only IT service provider with an Apple Authorized Service Provider at its core.
In addition to being a small business owner I taught technology-related classes at the Columbia Area Career Center, Columbia Public Schools, and authored a regular technology column for the Columbia Business Times, educating readers about new technology products.
I live in a Most Notable Historic Property bungalow just outside of downtown and can usually be found biking around Columbia.
