Laine Kohama has over 20 years of experience in the computer and technology industry. He has worked at both large Fortune 500 companies such as Sun Microsystems as well as at smaller locally-owned companies which has allowed him to diversify his knowledge and serve clients from every walk of life.
He has a vast array of partnerships and IT certifications with Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Cisco, Oracle, Sonicwall, VMWare, and Symantec to name a few. Always at the forefront of technology, his passion lies in looking for cutting-edge solutions that are cost effective, sustainable, and easy to implement for all levels of computer users.

His tagline "The Friendlier Side of Computer Services" personifies his company, whose mission is to build a bridge of understanding between clients and technology in a way that is friendly, simple and empowering.
