about me

My name is Ricky DeCoite.
I am a self-taught computer techie with over 6 years experience in the industry.


My interest into IT began at 17 when I joined a Minecraft server.
I quickly earned an administrative position. Months after that, I had a controlling interest in the server network. This opened a world of opportunities for me. From a game geared towards kids, I learned how to work with Linux, Windows Server, Apache, Nginx, MySQL (and a good amount of forks), to name a few.
Designing websites and developing code are not my strong suit, but I have dabbled in both. I am versed in the ability to read and decipher errors to maintain smooth operation on the systems I manage. From there, I branched into car audio/home audio, automotive mechanics, media servers, and networking.
With what I have taught myself, I have become the family/friends IT guy. I work full time with DeepNet Computer Consulting as a Systems Administrator, as well as part time work for several personal clients in Sonoma County. I look forward to meeting you and solving all your IT needs!
