Hi, I'm Sergey, owner of Your Computer Guy.
It all started in 2009 while I was living in California and didn't know what to do while the economy was crumbling! I realized that I have always enjoyed helping friends and relatives with their computer issues and my hobby has become my business.
I earned a degree in Computer Management Information Systems which equipped me to deal with small businesses. After my graduation, I got hired to become a system administrator at my alma mater. I was responsible for maintaining and upgrading the network that supported over 150 staff members and almost 2000 of students.
Several cross-country and international moves, and I still enjoy helping people fix their computers and solve various IT problems. To this day, I probably helped several hundreds of clients, many of whom still call me from other countries and cities.
After I met my wife, we moved to New Zealand and I took a job for a national computer repair company. I learnt a lot from that experience, including what not to do when running own business. I always knew I could do better and once an opportunity arrived, we moved to Nelson.
We now have a shop in Nelson CBD, located at 120 Bridge St. It's also a computer gaming lounge, so the hours are different from most traditional businesses... you can come see us in the afternoon and we are usually open until late evening. Best of all, we can help you on weekends as well, when most places are closed!
In 2017, we bought Digisafe - a video conversion and computer repair company. Ian and Tania had a shop at 5 Oxford Street and when they decided to retire, we promised to look after their customers!
If you need help at your home or office, we can also come and visit you. We have customers all over Nelson, Stoke, Richmond and even as far as Motueka and St Arnaud!
If you are further away, we can help you remotely, as long as your computer has a stable Internet connection.
