Hello, My name is Jaypoc.
Okay, well it’s not actually Jaypoc. It’s Jason, but those close to me can call me either. I’m an internet/computer geek from Long Island, NY.
Growing up, I was fortunate enough to be surrounded by computers. I had a Texas Instruments TI-99/4A of my own, and had access to a Kaypro II and an early IBM PC clone. I was always fascinated by computers and their potential, which eventually lead to my obsession of Bulleting Board Systems (BBS’s) and then, the Internet (Before it was cool!)
My interests stemmed beyond computers as well. My high school’s radio stations sparked an interest in broadcasting so I went to school for communications initially. It wasn’t until I realized there was no money in radio that I switched to computer science. I still maintain a position with the promotions teams at Connoisseur Media (K98.3 FM) that I’ve held since 1998.
Over the years, I have worked for the Plainview School District, Zany Brainy, Walmart, Radio Shack, BOCES, Estee Lauder, United Artists Theatres, Empire Classics Photography, Barnstable Broadcasting, North American Internet Service, Nuvisions Broadband, and am currently employed by Cablevision, one of the largest providers of cable TV, Internet and phone services, as a developer and team leader.
