Hi. My name is Dan Marakowski, Jr. and to put it simply, I have a passion for technology that is unmatched by other young entrepreneurs and technical professionals. I value education, especially in technology and business. As graduate of Widener University located in Chester, PA, I have achieved a Bachelors of Science in Professional Studies with a minor in Information Systems (2011), and plan to continue my education in technology. In my professional life, I work for a Public School District as the lead Technology Coordinator, servicing 300+ staff members, 1500+ students, 1100+ Apple iPads, 800+ desktop computers, VMware ESXi 6 infrastructure, and more (read my resume on LinkedIn).
On the side, I have been creating innovative businesses and solutions since 2002. Beginning as a high school student, I started a small business called “DMarakowski Computer Services,” with the intention to provide reliable and cost efficient computer repair and web development services. I serviced many of my teacher’s personal workstations, developed websites, and built custom computers. I soon began developing a healthy client list and web design portfolio. It was then that “NewLink Technology Solutions, LLC” was born. Thirteen years later, my company has grown exceptionally in size and service, and continues to serve Philadelphia, New Jersey, Delaware, and the surrounding areas.
Recently, I embarked on a few new challenges and initiatives. Currently, I am in the process of developing a non-profit foundation called “The NewLink Foundation.” This foundation will help provide underprivileged high school students financial assistance and scholarships to attend accredited universities with a concentration in technology and business.
On a personal level, there are some huge events taking place in my life. I got married! On 11/15/2014, my girlfriend, fiance, and best friend Stephanie and I are tied the knot. We both looked forward to starting our lives together and our wedding was just the start. Today, we are expecting our first child… a boy! Coming September, 2016.
Whether it’s my hobbies, businesses, work or personal life, I really enjoy showing you, the community, glimpses into my life. This is exactly why I also have a personal YouTube channel, in which I post anything and everything. From tech product reviews to personal and/or business advice from me to you, I am sure you will find something that truly interests you on my channel.
So what now?
