AJ Tatum

A Self Taught Techie

It’s no secret that I am passionate about technology. You can probably find me dabbling in some kind of tech. Helping people and businesses use technology to level up is what I do best.

Over the years, I’ve done everything from owning a business to working with startups to creating small and large scale websites.

As a techie and someone who enjoys marketing, I’m passionate about using technology for increased creativity, new possibilities, and new ways of thinking.

I'm a Technologist at heart

I am a technologist and can assist you in almost any technological field.

I’ve spent years refining my skill-sets into fine points in many different areas. These finely sharpened points may not be very deep, mind you, but they sharp!

I admit it, I’m truly the “jack of all trades, master of none” type.
