BRICK – Dan Carroll was a born entrepreneur.

“I started out cutting our neighbors’ lawns and also managed a lemonade stand at the end corner of the street I grew up in,” Carroll said. “At school, we had fundraisers and I sold cookies with the goal in mind to be the number one salesperson, ahead of everyone else. For me, it was all about putting something out there that everyone could use and have an interest in. They were able to purchase it and it did something for them. When I got something in return for all of my hard work, it felt like I was making something happen for myself.”

That’s what he has developed with Monmouth Computer Associates, his business that provides technology support for business and individual consumers.

“People need the help,” Carroll said. “There are so many people out there who are not tech-savvy and we provide that assistance and peace of mind for those individuals who need guidance to keep their devices working steadily and the technology that comes along with them.”

Carroll’s interest in computers goes as far back as he can remember.

“Ever since I was little, I began a fascination with computers and technology,” Carroll said. “I was enthralled with the way the wires worked and I started taking things apart and putting them back together. I remember when I got my first computer. I dismantled it and reassembled it again. I just knew how to connect everything and make it work. I loved the mechanics part and the electronics part. Just seeing everything work in the end really made me happy and I continued to evolve with it as I got older.”

‘Something inside my mind just clicked’

Carroll became the go-to guy at his high school for electronics. He developed a reputation for figuring out computers and he put that experience to good use.
