Tom Doenges

Tom Doenges owns and operates Computer San Juans which he started nearly 12 years ago. He's been in the computer industry about 25 years total. Many of you know him as a very talented guitarist who plays with the Henry James Blues Band, among others, as well as quite a bit of solo stuff. Being a musician got him involved in beta testing for Yamaha in the early 80's working on the first music computer for performers and also performance software, which ultimately led to the development of the DX7 (you'll have to ask him what that means because I have no idea). Anyway, the rest is history. DOS, Novel, pre Windows and post Windows launch. He worked for another software company for a year before starting his own business.

"I was born with the entrepreneur spirit", he says. "I have always had some sort of business since I was in High School for the most part. I guess I like me as a boss just fine."

He builds, rebuilds and repairs PC computers of any brand, and sets up and maintains networks anywhere from 2 computers to hundreds of computers. The photo above shows him in the nerve center of the new hospital where he's been working for the last couple of months getting things ready for the grand opening in November.

In addition to all this hard core business stuff, he also offers home computer solutions for all the rest of us as well.
