Continuing his career as a Technology Consultant, from 1996 to 1998, Jeff heightened his knowledge and skill through Zarge's International, as VP Technology for Big Picture Multimedia, and as CJ Network Technologies; a commercial web host.
His need for education continued as he follows the development and ever changing technological growth of today’s computers, with training, servicing and maintenance of various computer systems and networks that has ranged from Windows 3.1 through to Windows 7, and servers ranging from NT 3.51 through to Window Server 2008 R2.
