Jeff enjoys challenges and solving problems. He has an extensive and varied set of real-world experiences and abilities, in industries that include restaurant, computer hardware installation, computer programming, insurance, accounting, education, non-profit, real estate, rental, and pet industries.
In the past thirty years, Jeff established several businesses, providing for the accounting, employment, general business infrastructure, and day-to-day operational management. In the process developing and honing his bookkeeping skills, he also acquired 14 years full-charge payroll experience during this time.
In the 10 years prior, he was responsible for identifying customer requirements and fulfillment of those needs, often building out the equipment to the customer specifications: identifying inventory, upgrading/installing hard drives, memory, and video components, software installation, and testing, as a computer rental representative.
In another he provided specialty programming using dBaseIII, primarily converting data formats, such as mailing lists, but also multi-user business applications for banks and non-profit organizations.
He was also responsible for establishing the accounting and collection procedures.
Jeff's interest in business,
accounting (particularly payroll) and computer business
applications began with his first job in high school when he found an
error on a pay check. He created and developed a FORTRAN IV program to
calculate and track his pay using his high school's IBM 1130 computer
during his computer class. After graduation, Jeff completed computer
programming classes at Los Angeles Valley College, including BASIC, RPG
II, and COBOL.
