Here is the chance to find out about the E & S Computers Team, how they got started in I.T and what they like to do to relax!
Eddie Donnelly – Proprietor
Eddie has spent 25+ years working in I.T. After working for a Multi-National I.T Company as a Field Engineer, working on the Dell and Barclays Contracts to name a few, there isn’t much Eddie hasn’t seen.
Eddie’s “claim to fame” is that he crossed paths with Belinda Carlisle when she picked up his diary that he had dropped. He was loading a large laser printer into his van when he dropped it. Eddie was of course speechless!
Eddie’s love of all things technical started at an early age. He dismantled his Dad’s cassette player, and put it back together, with a few spare parts too! His first computer was a 48K Spectrum, which he changed the membrane for the keyboard on!!
When Eddie isn’t working he can be found modding his Commodore Amiga 1200. He enjoys playing retro games such as Ashes of Empire and Police Quest.
Joanne Tippett ~ Manager
Joanne has worked at E & S Computers since it was established in 2007. Her job background varies from Business Administrator, Hairdresser, Residential Care Assistant, and a Lunchtime Supervisor at a Primary School. Joanne completed a Level 3 Diploma in Management in 2018, which she thoroughly enjoyed. She is currently studying a TQUK Level 3 Award in Education and Training, which she is due to complete in the Autumn.
Her interest in IT started with the purchase of her first computer in 1993, a Commodore Amiga 1200, with hours spent playing games like Monkey Island & Maniac Mansion, and using the Word-processing package, to write stories.
Joanne also enjoys other pursuits outside of work that are less technical, such as experimenting in the kitchen (much to Eddie’s delight – unless something goes drastically wrong!). She likes to bake cakes, and on occasion brings them into work as a treat! She has also discovered a love for crochet and embroidery, which she puts down to her age! On researching her family history, and doing a DNA test, she uncovered cousins in USA and Australia. With a few close ancestral location links that she was unaware of!
