Jason Mirosh
President

A new division of Advanced Servers Corporation – our team at BlackBox Connections brings enterprise experience to the modern small and medium sized business.

In 1995 I co-founded Advanced Servers Corporation that lead to IT administration, desktop management and security project work at Digital Equipment Corporation (now HP), Citibank, UFA, Westfair Foods, Town of Canmore, City of Airdrie, Husky, AltaGas, Precision Drilling, Alliance Pipeline, Agrium, Encana, and The Law Society of Alberta.

I envision our BlackBox Connections team bring you a superior IT team without the IT department expense. Our low overhead allows us to keep IT prices low. Modern tech allows us to provide IT Support & Services to hundreds of users and devices all at once.

Gen Harrison
IT Manager

Working as a Systems Administrator I am responsible for any front end client issues as well as any networking and server related issues that may arise. I have been working in the IT industry for 5+ years and enjoy every moment of it! I started my career in Halifax working with hospitality and retail companies providing solutions to make sure that they had the tools to aid in growth and success. I also had a chance to work at the CTV station and assist in upgrading their growing complex environment.

I have a Computer Electronics Technician diploma as well as an Information Systems Specialist diploma. I also have my A+, Security + and Network + certificates.

I enjoy working with the client to make sure that at the end of the day that they have the best experience they can while making sure that their needs are met. I believe that having a passion to help the client is so important because it guarantees your best effort to make the client have a pleasant experience. I always encourage the clients to contact us anytime with any issue big or small, and to ensure that they feel comfortable coming to us with any issue or concern they might have. I want to make sure that all of our clients get the proper time and exposure that they may require to have the best IT experience possible!

As much as I love my position here at BlackBox Connections, I also enjoy my personal time. I enjoy weight lifting, playing basketball, swimming, boating, fishing, being out in the wilderness and spending time with friends and family.
