Orin Safko – Owner, Consultant
My professional career began in August 2008 with a position at an Apple Retail store. I was tasked with getting to know our customers, determine their needs, and provide the right solution.
Soon after leaving the Apple Retail store, I worked as the IT administrator for a car dealership in Cleveland. Functioning as the “IT department” (since I was the only person in the department) everything computer related fell on me. This experience gave me confidence as a technician and communicator.
After a little over a year at the dealership, I moved to an IT managed services company. This gave me the opportunity to work directly with many small business owners and their teams from a wide variety of industries. I gained a lot of insight in providing for the IT needs of small organizations through this experience.
For the past 4 years, I’ve had the opportunity to work as an IT support technician for a large organization in Cleveland. This has helped fine tune my understanding of information security practices, increase my level of personal organization, and improve my ability to prioritize.
Now, with over 10 years of experience in the IT field, I’m using Bentodesk as my platform for navigating other small business owners through the vast amount of technology available. Micro businesses and freelancers have more options of computer hardware and software to choose from than ever before. I’m here to support them and serve as their guide.
