DigitalJoshua – Created custom VoIP systems using platforms such as Fonality, Trixbox and FreePBX, for multiple companies in the United States with international branches. These systems are fully customized, work with analog/POTS converted lines as well as any SIP Trunk provider, and include features such as automatic attendant, voicemail to email, conference rooms, on-hold music / advertising, operator switch panels, queues, parking features, the ability to have and move any extension around the world, and compatibility with many phones and Hardware (Aastra, Digium, Sangoma, Grandstream, Plantronics, Poly, Polycom, Yealink), as well as software phones that can be used at any computer (Soft Phones).

This type of phone system proved itself very efficient during the COVID-19 outbreak in which several companies needed employees to work from home, while others had to move their headquarters completely. The phone system is very portable and offers fail-over functions, preventing the companies from losing any calls.


Riverwalk Ambulatory Surgery Center – Designed and implemented a Wi-Fi connectivity portable kit for the GE OEC Elite surgical imaging C-Arm machine. This allowed for the system to connect to a DICOM Server while remaining mobile and still meet OSHA standards. Also implemented the DICOM Server with viewing software for this machine, which Doctors and medical staff used to store and retrieve patient images.

Riverwalk Ambulatory Surgery Center – Modified a GE Datex-Ohmeda Anesthesia Machine to accommodate an all-in-one workstation, which gave the Anesthesilogist immediate EHR access for documentation. The modifications were inspected and approved.


Sparta Pet Palazzo – Designed and implemented a security camera system for their 35,000 square foot facility which averaged 100+ pets per day in Dallas, Texas. The project included the entire network infrastructure, as well as PoE, IP, analog, Wi-Fi, indoor, outdoor and pan/zoom/tilt cameras. The camera system allowed for monitoring of the parking lots, play areas, indoor work areas, and also allowed clients to remotely monitor each pet individually while boarding in their kennels, suites, or in doggy day care play areas.

Phase 5 Energy – Implemented a Security camera system at their 10,000+ square foot facility located in Washougal, Washington. The system allowed for monitoring of the warehouse, engineering, other indoor work areas, as well as parking lots and outdoor delivery areas.

Mi Pueblo Restaurant – Installed security camera systems at their University, Bee Ridge and Venice locations in Florida.


LeThe Online/DigitalJoshua – Since 1997, assembled and delivered over 200 computers branded as LeThe Systems, of different types and purposes in multiple countries. These included Servers and Desktop computers, including Full, Mid, SFF, Mini and other form factors. Components were selected from over 50 different manufacturers such as Intel, AMD, ASUS, MSI, PC-Chips, Shuttle, Dell, HP, Compaq, Antec, Enermax, NVIDIA, ATI, Rosewill, Biostar, Acer, Thermaltake, Gigabyte, DFI and many more.
Clients and builds ranged from simple workstations, to AutoCAD rendering, video production, medical PODS, theater projection, Gaming PCs, flight simulation stations, DJs/music production, and many more.


Manatee Performing Arts Center – Migrated the entire Network and Server infrastructure from the old theater to the brand new building in downtown Bradenton, Florida. This included Firewalls, switches, servers, access points, workstations, and re-configuration of the Theater’s proprietary management software (Theatre Manager) on brand new Servers.

World Promotions – Setup stage and sound production for Professional Ballroom shows as well as dance competitions in several US States and countries in ballrooms of 20,000+ square feet. This includes lighting with DMX cables as well as wireless controllers, spotlights, projector and screen setup, DJ setup with mixer, XLR runs for passive and active speakers, as well as microphones.
