building, as a barman, and as a teacher.
Q: What are your areas of expertise and how did you come to be involved with them?
A: I cover more than one area of expertise. For a living I repair computers, printers, monitors and electronic devices. I also like fixing my own cars and have restored several old cars. I am not a professional mechanic, but I can give good advice on cars. I also fix my own appliances and gadgets of any sort. I have learned a lot here on Fixya.
