Fix My Computer on Site
Daniel Moran is the Creative Director of
Fix My Computer On Site. He was born and raised in the colorful city of
Miami, Florida. It was in Miami where he took a fascination with art and
design. He knew from a very young age that he wanted to be involved in
something creative when he grew up, and when his father gave him his first
copy of Photoshop, Daniel knew exactly what he wanted to do: graphic
design. He spent many years learning the tools of the trade; Photoshop
lead him to finding a myriad of other Adobe programs that only enhanced
his love and passion for Design.
When his family moved up to Tampa, eleven
years ago, Daniel took it upon himself to continue studying his love for
design. He attended The Art Institute of Tampa where he majored in Graphic
Design. Noticing the trends, and where the design industry was going,
Daniel took the bold move to switch his major from Graphic Design to
Interactive Media and Web Design. Always one to push himself, he knew that
this new platform would open him up to different creative outlets.
After leaving The Art Institute of Tampa
with an abundant amount of knowledge, Daniel wanted to be a part of his
family's business. At the time Fix My Computer On Site was strictly a
computer repair company. He noticed there was a potential to reach smaller
businesses in the area through the ever expanding world of the internet.
He created the creative division within his family's company and has stuck
with it for more than three years. He's helped several small businesses in
Tampa, New York, and in Dallas have a professional and unique online
presence. There's nothing more gratifying than seeing a company come into
full bloom with his help.
When he's not working, Daniel loves to
spend his time with family and friends at the beach, reading, playing his
Mandolin, and traveling all over the US.
