My name is James Hickey, owner of Bigfoot PC's, and I have been in the business for over ten years. Beginning when I was kid, I had my hands in computers back when they were commodore 64's. Remember those days? Remember when we all learned to type on a typewriter? That was a long time ago, but i never lost my interest in computers. In June of 2000, I got my IT & business certification from Tri-county Technical Institute in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Later I worked and eventually became a lead programmer for a major IT firm based in phoenix, AZ. After that, I started training and specializing in the hardware field, and eventually moved back home to Oregon, where I opened my doors to the public. My companies affiliations with other collegues & private contacts in the field, have allowed a steady flow of business with many small companies in which we maintain their websites, and provides technical support.
I am proud to offer a wide variety of local low-cost computer services to Oregon residents, which includes
