WICHITA — Nayan Patel is another businessman who decided to turn his hobby into his full-time work.
"I have been enjoying playing with different Audio Video equipment for many years," he said via e-mail.
Patel worked for Boeing for a dozen years but now is opening Tech Solutions at 350 N. Rock Road. He said his goal is to help customers transfer older files of all sorts into digital ones. He said that could be a shoebox full of photographs or negatives or it could be albums, 8-track tapes or VHS tapes, among other things. Patel said he also has high-speed scanners and duplication machines.
There are other services Patel will provide as well. For instance, he'll offer shredding services and pick-up and delivery for computer, cell phone and TV repairs at the GeekShop Repairs.
By July, Patel will have a 16-person conference room set up for international video conferencing and other meetings.
Patel said these are merely some of his initial plans.
"Future plans are 3-D printing, home video security installation, LCD/LED TV installation, etc."
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
