Instant Response Team Lead // Managed Systems Technician
Agustina, known by her friends as Tina, was born and raised in Greenfield, California in Monterey County. When she was 17, she moved to Fresno, California to attend Fresno State University. Tina was 12 when her father first bought a computer, and from there he always said, "if you break it, you will fix it." This began her journey with learning how to fix computers and various electronics.
She was self-taught through much research on the items she was working on. Since then, she's always had a liking for electronics. After working in IT retail, she found out that by helping people with their computer issues, she became passionate about IT work. When Augustina isn't working, she loves to watch sports (Go Giants, Raiders, & Lakers!!), having game nights with friends, going to the beach, playing videogames, and visiting her family (especially her nephew who she loves with all her heart). Also, she enjoys going on adventures with her boyfriend. She is a huge Disney and Harry Potter nerd, and hopes to one day fulfill her dreams of traveling around Europe and going to the Disneyland in Paris.
George C. Hamparson II
Senior Managed Systems Technican
Working in the IT industry since 1990 performing design and installation of LAN/WAN hardware and related software for a variety of different industry segments, George has developed a strong set of troubleshooting skills and an outside-the-box approach to most things IT related.
George also has an outside-the-box approach to life. He and his wife decided to uproot their family and move to the Central Coast all within a four-day period, and he loves anything that shoots, explodes, goes fast or rocks hard. But George is also an active Scout dad, teaches his kids piano, loves giving back to his community and most of all, being a dad. That part is pretty in-the-box. ;)
Senior Managed Systems Technician
Born and raised in the Central Valley, Zach grew up on an almond ranch. As a child, finding out how things worked was always an exciting pastime. His first computer was a gifter Apple II clone (Laser 128) with which Zach taught himself to program in the Basic programming language. Later, after acquiring a used PC, and much trial/error, he gained enough computer experience to land a job at a local PC/network repair shop, and that was how the love affair with technology began. Now 20 years later, his love for working with technology is still going strong.
He currently resides in Fresno, California with his wife and their two Rhodesian Ridgeback dogs. He enjoys flying radio controlled airplanes, tinkering on his Mustang Cobra, wake boarding in the summer/snowboarding in the winter, and relaxing at home.
Managed Systems Technician
From a very young age, Brian always found joy in taking things apart to understand how they work. At 10 years old, he started fixing computers for friends and family, going to computer shows in Oakland picking out parts and building computers. In his early teens, Brian joined a non-profit computer recycling organization with his grandfather, putting hundreds of broken computers back to work and into the community. He learned military discipline in JROTC and how to fly airplanes in the Civil Air Patrol. Graduating High school at age 16, Brian got his associates degree from Heald college just after turning 18 and later received a BS in Computer science with a minor in Software Development from WGU. In his 15+ years of experience, Brian has worked for companies such as Electronic Arts, Geek Squad, and spent 4+ years with the US Department of Defense.
Beyond being great at fixing computers, Brian is an especially talented programmer and has a passion for creating software. He believes software is an artform that only has bounds set by the human imagination. He has created software ranging from Systems management tools to groundbreaking Virtual Reality content prototypes (patents pending). Brian left California for Colorado for a few years when he bought a 33-acre farm and decided to experience how life Off-grid was. With solar panels/wind turbines, a well, septic system, chickens, and goats etc. he learned how to truly live self-sufficiently.

Managed Systems Technician
David was raised swimming and causing various mischief on the California Delta, until moving to Clovis with his mom and two young sisters to start high school at age 14. By age 15 - after playing around in BASIC on a Radio Shack Tandy TRS-80 Model II for a few months, he decided he needed more speed so set up a trade deal with a local PC Shop, where he hawked a TV/VCR Combo unit for the down payment on a brand new IBM 486 SX30 SLC (later upgraded to DLC with a $40 Math Co-processor) and thus began his lifelong obsession with performance computing.
David began his IT career at a local computer shop, followed by an internet service provider and most recently 13 years as a support engineer for a major CCTV Manufacturer. He, his wife of 19 years, their son and two stepsons live together in Clovis, where they enjoy PC Gaming, stand-up comedy and spoiling their menacing guard dogs (or so they think), a Shorkie and Maltipoo.

Originally from Marshall, Arkansas, Josh's love for computers started when he was 10 years old when he built his own from parts he found at garage sales. His passion for technology grew in the years to come and inspired him to start his own business “Computer Solutions by DeX” which he ran from 2009-2013 when he moved to Southern California. And now he is "SUPER excited" about landing at TekTegrity and looks forward to where it takes him.
As you may have gleaned from his photo, Josh is an enthusiastic, member of the "Beard Community". But what may not be obvious is that not only is Josh competitive about his facial hair and has collected quite a few trophies over the years, but he is also a contracted professional Arm Wrestler with the Ultimate Arm Wrestling League. So be impressed...and warned.
Keeth is a modern incarnation of the true Renaissance man (a Renaissance man dualistically from Philly and New Jersey, no less).

Currently Keeth’s greatest passions, aside from his continuous commitment to photography, surfing and learning all things tech, are being an awesome dad to his young daughter and co-managing his family’s ethnic/alternative dance and music studio.
