I’m the lead technician at iRepairFast and also the Master solder technician. I started at iRepairFast almost three years ago at the Ponte Vedra shop and eventually made my way over to the Fruit Cove store. Since moving over to Fruit Cove, I have been able to advance my knowledge of all electronics, including main board level repairs.
My love for electronics and tinkering came at a very young age. Anything I could get my hands on I was taking things apart and figure out exactly how it works. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was reverse engineering. A lot of what we do here goes back to that because to trace back issues and component failures we sometimes have to reverse engineer what the manufacturer did when building the device. Being able to come in every day and work on all this great technology is like a childhood dream I have always had.
When I first started at iRepairFast I was responsible for just iPads, but as time went on I become responsible for more complicated repairs, and now I am diagnosing and fixing everything from cell phones, tablets, computers, and most of all mainboards. I am responsible for all of the IC replacements. It is a very advanced process that very few shops in the United States can perform. The recent epidemic from Apple and the iPhone 6/6 Plus, also known as “touch disease,” can be cured with this process. These IC replacements are very similar to surgery and can have complications, but I’m happy to say that I have been able to perfect this replacement to become like a standard repair that we perform here. I will continue to learn and fix bigger and bigger issues.
