Mike Visniewski

Lead Technician
Mike's first computer was an Apple IIc that Santa brought him one Christmas morning. That touched off a lifelong interest in computers and technology. As a kid, Mike would frequently get in trouble for disassembling computers and small appliances around the house. Mike graduated from UMass Amherst with a BS in Civil Engineering in 2007. He spent nine years as an engineer in the telecommunications sector working with all the major cell phone carriers. In addition, he became the de facto computer repairman in his company. Mike left the world of engineering to join Calm Computing in 2016. He enjoys working with individuals and small businesses to solve their technology problems.

In his spare time, Mike is a Captain/EMT on the Amherst Fire Department where he has served since 2003. In addition, he is a Firefighter/EMT with the Leverett Fire Department. He enjoys travelling the country, attending comic book conventions, amateur radio, and various other nerdy pursuits with his wife.
