I am always looking forward to each new challenge as they are all exciting opportunities to learn. I also enjoy assisting others to creating their own unique web presence. Feel free to reach out on Facebook with any creative questions. 

I Njoy Computers

I cannot say I was the first Apple Lisa user, I am ,however, very happy to say that my first computer was a Commodore 64. Using this computer, I developed my attraction to the power that computers have to solve problems logically. I was fortunate to be born into an era when computers had  become a consumer item before I was thirteen. I began programming with a Commodore 64 and right away found it very easy to make an 8 color hot-air balloon travel across the screen. From that point on, I was hooked on the magic of programming.

Twenty-five years later, I have become tech-junkie. I have used and abused every operating system post 1984. I have had the pleasure of witnessing our country slowly adjust to new technologies that were becoming readily available since the 1980’s. What fascinates me the most about computers, is that you can give them a task to do and they will complete it, and repeat it, until the conditions become false. I have a small computer repair shop in downtown Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania in which I repair broken computers, and buy and resell used laptops and desktops. POCONOS COMPUTERS.

Recording Artist

I have a small studio called Pinetop Recording Studio in downtown Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. We assist new and younger musicians to achieve their goals of becoming well known artists with a digital online presence. We assist professional musicians to write, record, and produce CD’s and digital music.

Musician

When I was about 12, I began taking violin lessons. My family chose the violin for me because they knew I would have no problem with the level of difficulty. Because the entire instrument in its case was very light, it was easier to carry to school with me. At age fourteen, I started liking the girls at school, so I began to enjoy the violin less and thought that if I picked up the guitar I would get more attention from girls. In hindsight, I couldn’t have been more wrong…. Hormones. 

I have had a few solid music lessons throughout my life, a few from Spencer Reed, another from Erin McClelland, and another from Bill Washer. I enjoy woodshedding a song with my most valuable musical team which includes my good friend the late Danny Lattuca and a solid drummer, Rubin Ariola. I was studying Blues and Jazz through Northampton Community College with Erin McClelland. I eventually received a Bachelors of Arts with cum laude from Kutztown. I am currently in my last semester at VCFA studying guitar with Nate Radley and music composition with Andy Jaffe. 

Composer

I have composed numerous pieces. Here are a few:

Menina Bonita-Samba
Shikari-Modern Wind Quintet
Lizzies Bop- Jazz
Against Me- Lyrics and Guitar

Improviser

I am an musical improvisor. I play and recreate classics through on the spot creation of new melodies over familiar and unfamiliar harmonies. 

I AM THE BLUES DUDE

I am Acoustic Bliss

Most of all I love to dream, talk, eat, travel, and sleep.

My Name is Jeremiah Williams and I currently reside in Pennsylvania.
