About Me

Hi and welcome to my blog! I'm Carl, owner and lead technician of Select Tronix in Amelia Island, Florida. Me and my team have been serving thousands of locals and visitors with their electronic needs for years, including computers, phones, tablets, TVs, home theaters, surveillance, and alarm systems. My passion is problem-solving, and even at nearly 40 years of age, I can't get enough of it.

With my new blog, my goal is to share my knowledge and experience from my 23 years in the tech industry. I hope to help those who can't afford tech services and reach a wider audience of potential customers. I've also partnered with my favorite companies like Amazon, Acronis, and Malwarebytes to earn a passive income to help support my time away from the store to develop new content here.

I truly appreciate your support, and I promise to only recommend products that I have personally used and to warn against any items that could cause damage to your electronic devices. Thank you for choosing Select Tronix!
