Originally, a North Dakota farm boy from out in the Dickinson area, I moved to the Red River Valley back in 1990. ...first to go to school at UND in Grand Forks, and then eventually to settle down in Fargo to work with Great Plains Software.
My skills are a mix of self-taught application and technical training by Sykes in Bismarck (where I learned the basics of hardware and operating system troubleshooting), Great Plains in Fargo - which became part of Microsoft (where I learned networking skills, basic database management and advanced operating systems), and Diamond Municipal Solutions in Fargo (where I further honed my skills).
I established FatRichie's Computer Repair in 2004 on a part-time basis, but since late 2013, I have been able to make FatRichie's my full time endeavor.
Ben joined FatRichie's right after graduating from Fargo North High School in 2020.
He has quickly become indespensible in our daily operations. Though he is still learning some of the more advanced technical aspects of the job, he's already taking care of hardware upgrades and operating system installs on a daily basis.
Ben is often the face you will see when dropping off or picking up computers as he handles the store while Rich goes on service calls.
