Hi, I am Michael Peterson of Smoke and Mirrors, Inc. I specialize in computer and network support. I also specialize in setting up small to medium size businesses with all the resources they need to keep their business IT needs covered.
Services I offer:
I've been an IT professional since 1991 and clients include major engineering companies, retailers and small municipalities.
I provide services to anywhere in the Portland, Oregon area including small outlying areas. In addition to being a "techie," my first degree was in Psychology and my Master's is in Business so I understand how businesses work and I deal very well with both principals and staff.
