ABOUT US

Taylor J. Ford

Chief Executive Officer (pictured)

I built my first computer at the age of 10 which led to my first business. An entrepreneur from the beginning, I sold IT services to friends and family members doing jobs like installing music to iPods and organizing files on computers. I quickly became the IT guru of the family and lived in that glorious space until college. I attended Syracuse University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, minoring in chemistry in 2014.  When chemical engineering yielded no viable job opportunities, I sought positions in chemistry. Unfortunately, worthy positions in chemistry proved to be elusive as well. That’s when I decided to return to my first love, technology! I started my professional technology adventure as a third-party vendor. Right from the beginning I observed common IT industry practices that did not benefit the client. Eventually, I decided to start my own business to be the antithesis of what this industry can be. Voila, IT’s 4 Me LLC was born in 2018. My philosophy is to provide information, not just fix. I want to dispel the idea that IT is confusing and difficult, it isn’t. IT is a tool that is designed to work for you, we want to show you how!
