Meet Elijah Dittersdorf of Mom’s Computer

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elijah Dittersdorf.

Elijah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
The project that brought me to notice is Mom’s Computer – Technology Care for Senior and Adult Learners, built by and for folks that struggle dealing with technology.

So I’ll begin my story at the majestic and pivotal age of 50. After having the good fortune of selling a business in my earlier years, I was able to do some things I always wanted to do. One was play my banjo more, which I did. This led me to an audition for a C/W Act called Brooks and Dunn, in particular a track/video called Hillbilly Deluxe. It became a hit and I spent a few years playing the banjo even more. This was in 2009 and mobile technology was just getting good. After I hung up my touring banjo hat, I settled into my next project.

Mom’s Computer came about in the wake of the subprime financial crisis in 2008. Many jobs were lost, when things started to heal around 2014, many workers were aged out of the workforce. These folks needed some basic updated computer skills to now navigate a new digital workspace, or retirement or just keep an old Windows 8.1 going a bit longer due to budget. This demographic needs patient guidance, not just cold answers, That’s our formula; Exceptional technology care delivered patiently and with heart.

Thus began the actual building of Mom’s, through employees to government contracts, all here under the warm LA sun.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
For me, the road’s been smooth enough, the rocky part was revving the engine up again for the journey.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Mom’s Computer – Technology Care for Senior’s and Adult Learners provides exceptionally technology care, applied patiently and ethically. We are a national company serving all 50 states.

What separates us is our approach to the technology support model. For any user, at any stage and most importantly with the devices they have.

A few years back, we were contracted by the Los Angeles City Employee Retirement System (LACERS) to work with their Retirees as a benefit. That relationship has grown as a result of the pandemic and I was recently invited to address their Senior Board in an official LA City Board Meeting to explain our data and findings in working with their retirees.

Mom’s is a resource for anyone. We still have a good old 800 number and no tech issue is too big or small.

Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc?
My most recent book was a giant of a thing. Grant by Ron Chernow. Had never delved into President Grant, this book made me glad I did. Updated my thoughts on our American experience.
