Hello, My name is Thomas Knapik and I have over twenty years of experience in the information technology field and successfully started multiple businesses. These business ventures have provided a wealth of experience in not only the IT part of the business, but other areas such as sales, accounting, manufacturing and so forth. Having an understanding of the full business process certainly is critical in proper application of technology.
I enjoy the technology field and take pride in every project I participate in. Be confident I'll complete your projects as if they were my own.

Take care

Tom
