Paul Harmon: A Journey Through Tech and Art

Born in the vibrant city of Las Vegas, Paul Harmon’s life has been a colorful tapestry of experiences across various states. His journey began with a few years in sunny Florida, followed by formative years in the picturesque landscapes of Colorado. College led him to Iowa, where he attended Drake University, and then back to Colorado for a significant chunk of his life. Eventually, fate guided him to Florida once more before settling in the artistic haven of Asheville, North Carolina.

Tech Enthusiast and Network Wizard: Paul’s affinity for technology ignited early on. In high school, he clinched first place in a computer construction competition during a tech expo. This achievement set the stage for his lifelong passion for all things tech. From running networks for colleges to supporting small businesses, Paul’s expertise in networking and systems administration has been instrumental in connecting people and organizations.

Weathering the Storm: In 2022, Hurricane Ian unleashed its fury, bringing a 12-foot storm surge that devastated Paul and his wife Carrie’s home on Sanibel Island. This natural disaster prompted them to seek a fresh start, and their quest led them to Asheville. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville offered a vibrant and diverse cultural adventure.

Exploring the Art Scene: Paul’s curiosity extends beyond technology. He immerses himself in Asheville’s thriving art scene, attending weekly figure drawing salons downtown. The interplay of creativity, expression, and human form captivates him. Whether it’s the brushstrokes of a painter or the lines of a sculptor, Paul finds inspiration in the artistic tapestry woven throughout the city.

A Multifaceted Skillset: As Paul settles into his new home, he eagerly anticipates contributing to ATS’s clients. His diverse skillset—forged through years of tech expertise, resilience in the face of adversity, and a passion for art—positions him as a valuable asset. Paul Harmon, the tech-savvy artist, is ready to weave his magic in the heart of Asheville.
