Ali’s first experience with computers was during his employment at CanTex where he transferred graphics from paper to computer as a CAD operator. As time went by and technology grew in leaps and bounds, he found himself tweaking his home PC’s and devices to improve their performance and get the best possible experience. For many years he remained working in the transportation industry and in his spare time enjoyed photography, videography and website building and became proficient in using social networking sites to promote his personal interest in nature and the outdoors. A back injury eventually led him to choose a new career in Network Administration.
