Joe Dakroub

Digital Handyman

Hi, my name is Joe Dakroub.

I have been in the digital business for over 20 years.

My work includes designing, building, supporting and fixing digital stuff.

I tackle jobs that most people won‘t do.

I clean up old, smelly code and restore it to a pristine shine.

Sound like something you need?

I’m your Digital Handyman.
