Hi I’m Liam Tidwell, owner operator of LiamTek. My primary goal is rapid, precise repair for your tech problems. Good customer relationships are the foundation of my business. When there is a better option for your needs than what I can offer, I’ll tell you. I prefer to earn your trust forever to making a few bucks from you now.
I received my first computer in 1986 and have loved technology ever since. I spent over a decade as a combat medic in the Army National Guard. During that time (which included a 18 month deployment for Operation Iraqi Freedom III) my fellow soldiers & I were lucky I worked on more computers than people. This helped to renew my passion for computers and lead to the decision to leave the medical field and move toward IT. After I returned from Iraq, I started my first computer repair business in Idaho and that was all it took. Fast forward a few years and we’ve moved to Longview, Texas where LiamTek was started in April of 2011. Since opening we’ve moved to a larger location, honed our offering of services, & are continually evolving the business to best serve what I believe are the best clients around.
Enough LiamTek history, I’m not here to sell you on my services. If I have to sell you on me we’re probably not right for each other. Instead here is some useless trivia about me.
I’m a lefty (often to my own detriment), I don’t like to be barefoot, I’ve been to 5 countries, had the same 2nd grade teacher as my mom, & have driven over both the Tigris & the Euphrates.
For fun I fly RC airplanes & multi-rotors (often mistakenly called drones). Flight videos here & here. I mostly fly FPV (first person view) Where I see what you are seeing in the videos while I fly through a set of wireless video goggles. Yes, it is as fun as it sounds. Do ever crash? All the time. If you aren’t crashing you aren’t learning.
In addition to flying, I sword fight. What? Sword fighting you say, yup full contact medieval style combat -example video. I’ve been participating since the early 90’s – I’ve fought multiple formats over the years but mostly fight Belegarth, Dagorhir, & Amtgard. I was recently able to start a local chapter (Iron Wasteland) here in Longview with the help of a few friends in May of 2015. We meet weekly at the LETU campus and have a riot.
If you feel inclined to join me for either activity or just want to know more, feel free to drop me a line or give me a ring.
Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me a bit.
