Dean's Vision

"I saw firsthand how lack of access to technology marginalizes communities. My passion for equity led me to bridge the digital divide by refurbishing devices and providing computer literacy programs. Though the road is long, each donated computer brings us closer to digital accessibility for all."

Life challenges

Growing up with an inspiring single mother who had emigrated to make a better life, Dean internalized her empathy and compassion. Witnessing her struggles and triumphs as an immigrant seeking opportunity ignited within him an ardent dedication to empowering lives.



Dean's ingenuity sparked early, piecing together discarded parts to craft a functioning computer from society's castoffs. Though rudimentary, this first machine foretold his visionary spirit and relentless drive to uplift others through technology.



A chance elevator encounter sparked his calling. When he crossed paths with a couple ready to discard their old computer, he saw an opportunity to make a difference. Taking that machine home, he nurtured the seeds of a vision.


& Impact
