President – R.K. Enterprises & Consulting, Inc. D/B/A Computer Solutions
At age 12 he was tutoring fellow classmates on how to use their Apple and Texas Instrument computers in the classroom. As a teachers assistant, he solved computer problems and supervised other students.
Getting started with a single Commodore 64 at age 13, he quickly learned programmed skills that he put to use writing and hosting his own bulletin board service (BBS). While learning hacking and programming with a large Commodore 64 and Commodore 128 computer setup, he progressed rapidly.
He worked hard to make it into Lafayette High School. As one of the few High Schools outfitted with a computer studies program, he was accepted even though it was not his local zoned school. During that time he became very interested in all aspects of computers, from programming to repairs and networks. He was regularly called upon to solve computer problems, tutor other students and even more often – the teachers.
At age 16 he began working at a local computer store in Brooklyn where he quickly learned about computer assembly and repairs as well as business and sales. By age 18 he was managing the companies stores from time to time and doing private consulting work on the side for both personal and business customers.
After attending Staten Island college for a year and a half at night and on weekends, he decided he wanted to start his own company. After about a year of working independently he started R.K. Consulting in 1993. He provided all aspects of computer services including onsite repairs, consulting, training and sales. The business was incorporated into R.K. Enterprises & Consulting, Inc. in 1998.
Since then Bob Karon has been providing the solutions that businesses need. From technology consultant to network sales and support and Internet security.
