Stewart St. James
Founder | Sr. Manager of Engineering
Stewart St. James originally got his start in IT at a very young age. He lived in a small neighborhood with about 30 or so homes, where Internet and IT services were out of reach for most, who would need to drive into the city or its surrounding areas just to get computers fixed. He worked to network his entire neighborhood into a single network and secured those connections. He worked to provide daily support to each of the homes while attending High School. He went on to become the Help Desk Support Agent at a local Houston organization, and later would become their IT Director and think tank department of initiative solutions for Spencer Training and Educational Company.
In 2013, Stewart left Houston and moved to Dallas/Fort Worth where he went to work for Baylor Medical. Stewart was instrumental in designing and deploying the EDI Systems for all the current day Medical Insurance Claims processing. Shortly after the completion of this project, he began working for Microsoft Corporation in the Windows Reliability Engineering Department. His job focused in on supporting Fortune 500 and 100 organizations on their infrastructure, assisting with memory leaks, systems performance, and day to day debugging of applications.
Stewart is a Microsoft Certified Professional. He has earned many decorated awards for his services and knowledge in IT. He has assisted on projects with many large corporations including Apple, Google, and Cisco Systems. He currently holds multiple Security and Cyber Awareness Certifications, as well multiple commendations from the US Congress, Mayors and Local Officials.
Stewart says, “I enjoy solving complex problems for clients, whether that is finding the best technology for their organization or solving some difficult technical issue. My goal is to build healthy, long-term relationships with our clients by being a trusted advisor and partner. We have a good team and great clients which is what makes working for each of them so fulfilling and enjoyable.”
In his time away from IT, you can find him disconnecting from all this technology by spending time outdoors. Some of his favorites are camping, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking and wine tasting. He also volunteers for various causes, enabling charitable causes to benefit from his industry experience. Some might say they especially appreciate his talent for home-cooking and making excellent drinks. So much so, he was once urged to create a YouTube channel, ‘Drinks with Stewart’. His friends would say he’s a knowledgeable guy who is an in-depth thinker as well as exceedingly gifted at reverse engineering of software and complex issues.
