You cannot just call Chris Graham a computer geek. He’s more of an eclectic geek that towers over 6’7″ frame.
You can often find Chris playing the piano every Friday and Saturday night at the Dimmick Inn. He has a regular following and often draws an even larger crowd at this historical site on the corner of Harford and Broad Streets in Milford, PA. While he plays the piano at the restaurant, Chris is just as talented with a guitar, saxophone, clarinet, or flute.
His skills don’t stop there. Chris can help you with a host of other things you might need. For example, his specialty is website design and search engine optimization since he spent years in the computer industry with IBM and MSGI. If you do not have a computer he can even build you a brand new one or fix what you have. In fact, Chris brags to be able to fix most things electronic and I believe it. The day I visited him at his shop called New Wave Vintage located at the Upper Mill of the Lumberyards, he had just completed repairing some fancy robot that can move and speak via a wireless remote control.
It’s tough for a business to survive in Milford, PA which is dependent on the tourism industry so you really need to be involved in many pursuits so if Chris is not playing the keys or blowing the sax or behind a computer, he may be out and about playing with radio controlled cars and airplanes. These aren’t just your run of the mill RC airplanes mind you. Some of these are the size of picnic tables that can easily be mistaken for one of the governments spy drones.
If you are looking for an interesting character to listen to, chat with or do business with stop by and say hi to Chris at NWV Hobby and Tech is a computer repair office, website and surveillance business, as well as a hobby shop he owns along with John and Diane Fernandez.
