Small Business IT, Communication Design, Web Design

I’m Russ Tovar. I’m an Information Technology (IT) Professional. I’m a generalist. I don’t specialize in one particular area of IT. I have a broad range of knowledge in desktop support, security, networking, servers, application administration, cloud computing, and mobile devices. I’ve been working with computers since my early days in the Army as a Special Forces Communications Sergeant (MOS 18E). I started with MS DOS and digital messaging that used satellite and high frequency radio technology. In my corporate career, I worked in the healthcare field specializing in database administration, application development, application administration, and quality assurance testing. Currently I work as an independent contractor to supplement my income. I’m also a professional Bikram yoga teacher. I am a leader and hands-on project manager. I have a bachelors of arts in English with emphasis in poetry and philosophy. My clients are small business owners ranging from 10-50 employees and annual revenues of 1M. I’m good at transforming troubled and dysfunctional IT systems into efficient workhorses. I believe that IT should hum in the background and not be the center of attention.

Small Business Information Technology

I do servers, networking, desktop support, and phones. I work on-site, at your location, interacting with your people–face to face. I specialize in communication. I learn and speak your language and translate “tech-speak” so you can understand what’s going on. I am not a gatekeeper. I am a navigator for you. I’ll lead you through the field of information technology guiding you to your best solution. I’m great at cutting through the overhead, and working in your best interests. I simplify and reduce. I will modernize your office and transform your IT footprint, leveraging the power of the cloud.

Communication Design

I specialize in business oriented graphics design: logos, icons, posters, flyers, banners, and marketing material. I’m skilled in color, line, and shape and have formal training in creative arts. I also have strong technical and analytical skills. I use industry standard software products like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. For quick turn-arounds, I use Adobe Stock with access to millions of stock photos and designs. I even have access to an animation designer. Let me know what you’re looking for. 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Rachel and I Build Websites

I provide turnkey website solutions. I’ll sit with you and guide you through requirements analysis through one or many face-to-face interviews. My co-designer, Rachel, is skilled in creating wireframes and mockups, defining colors and space. I translate her designs into technically accurate responsive web pages.  I’ll take time to show you the look and feel before I start to code. I’ll develop your textual content, your imagery, and logos. I can get you a domain, find a suitable website host, and build you a premium website. I’ll be there to support you through time and change.

My Approach

My team is small by design. We are only a few highly skilled people. I work out of my bags, no office, little overhead. I approach your business requirements, like web servers, office applications, cyber security, using cloud services. This looks like off-loading heavy on-premise servers and applications to hosting partners who take care of the day-to-day administration, like security and backups. The result is a well-cared-for server, serviced by experts in their field, leaving you to do what you do best…run your business.  A cloud-based IT strategy frees you up so you can move around your work environments, between branches and offices, with your information and your applications always at your fingertips.
