My name is Jeffrey R. Evans. I live, consult, and attend school in Long Beach, California.
I founded Evans Computers in June of 1995. I published this web site on December 24, 1997. By today’s standards that old site was pretty simple, but it was html 1.1 compliant. You can visit what it looked like then at the WaybackMachine.
There are many that have tried to emulate my success in the computer industry.
To each and every one of those, Thank You! You have made my business that much stronger and well known. Web Site Statistics
I started my career in the United States Army in 1982. I attended the MOS 31S10 Field General ComSec Repairer (Telecommunications Security) course at The U.S. Army Signal School at Fort Gordon, Georgia. After my tour in the Army, I attended Fullerton Community College for a year, majoring in Oceanography.
In 1986 I became a contractor for McDonnell Douglas Aircraft at the Long Beach plant, as the Telecommunications System Analyst for Hangar 54. I still smile wide every time I see a C-17.
In 1989 I went to work for the Army as a DoD civilian(Electronics Mechanic WG-11) at Fort Irwin. The Army funded a great deal of my computer training for PCs. The 11 years of telecommunications security systems trouble shooting, helps too.
I began to work in earnest on PCs exclusively when I went to work at Earthlink in 1995. Then after being there for some six months my supervisor volunteered me to create and manage the MacIntosh Support team at Earthlink. Thanks Michael.
I also co-founded the MSN© Gaming Zone® zTech team in 1995 along with Dan Sommers.
In 1998 I went to work for Canon Information Systems as a Senior Network Engineer for the quality assurance group of the Netspot team. A year later I was at Zenographics in a similar role.
1999 found me at DeskTalk Systems, as the Quality Assurance Manager. In 2000 I went to work for a small start-up called Shopping.com as a Senior Systems Stress Test Engineer. We were bought by Alta Vista, Alta Vista was bought by Compaq, Compaq was bought by HP. We were the third largest e-commerce company in the World, Life was Good.
In the year 2001 I decided it was time to dedicate ALL of my time to my own business.
After the collapse of the economy, I began to attend Long Beach City College in the summer of 2011, majoring in Computer Business Information Systems – Network Administration and Hardware.
I look forward to pursuing my Bachelors of Science in Computer Technology – Homeland Security at Cal State Dominguez Hills after I graduate from LBCC in January of 2014.
