Computer Medic has been providing the Austin area with computers and computer services since 1998. We are located in south Austin at the southwest corner of South Congress Avenue and Ramble Lane, just north of Stassney, approximately 12 blocks south of Highway 71 (Ben White Boulevard.)
Scott, Owner and Principal
Scott has lived in Austin since childhood. Before founding Computer Medic in 1998, he worked as an Editor for Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Publishers where he was the Lead in developing the American edition of the ground-breaking SciencePlus educational series. The blank spot on his resume is from a period of indecision that came after that ended, in 1996. Back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, Scott earned a BA in Geology from the University of Texas at Austin, a degree he somehow never used, unless you count his excellent mineral collection (come see the meteorites!) When he grows up, he hopes to visit exotic destinations across the world and write travel books. He lives in South Austin with canine companions Deacon and Frieda (see below.)
Seed, Office Manager
Originally hailing from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Seed moved to Paris, France at the age of seventeen to attend university. She liked it so much she stayed on for seven years, earning a degree in Art History and attending classes at the Sorbonne for a year before eventually ending up in Austin in 2003. She speaks, reads, and writes French fluently, and offers customized tutoring for all ages. Her experience in Austin has included managing a warehouse art space, designing smartphone apps, being on the production team of a local arts festival, writing and editing, and various administrative support roles. Friend to all, she is interested in everything and enjoys experiencing diverse perspectives.
Su, Lead Technician
Su is a veteran of the US Army, having served tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and some other -stans she can’t tell you about. (Well, she could, but then she would have to kill you, and you probably don’t want that.) Su lives and breathes computers, and prefers to do math in binary, not that overrated decimal system. Seriously: where else can you get your computer fixed by a girl who has worked on helicopter electronics?
Alvin spent more than 30 years in the automotive business, followed by ten years as a professional dog trainer, with showings at prestigious Schutzen competitions across the United States. He is currently semi-retired and aiming to keep it that way.
Deacon, canine extraordinaire, is resident greeter and invaluable technical consultant. Mostly Catahoula, a type of hound, he has been with Scott for twelve years, ever since that day he just sort of wandered up and introduced himself. But please don’t call him “old.” He’s “mature,” thank you very much. Time for a nap now.
Frieda, Scott’s newest pack member, is a consummate schmoozer and loves absolutely everybody. (Well, except for that one guy, but we don’t dwell on that.) Scratch behind her ears and she’s all yours. Yes, she’s part Rhodesian Ridgeback. How about that awesome double whorl!
Pepper, Su’s fierce beast, is a brindle American Staffordshire Terrier mix. She is a rescue and was within 24 hours of being put down when her rescue group came along. Likes: treats, belly rubs, romps in the woods, naps. Dislikes: paper bags, noises, thunderstorms, stern looks. Very well-behaved with the most soulful eyes you have ever, ever seen.
