Since a child, Teddy was born curious-minded and loves to know how things work, so often Teddy’s brother complained that he took his toys apart but then had them reassembled. This character/obsession of his has grown him into a strong interest in computers. His first family computer was an IBM XT with Dual 5.25 inch floppy drives and a CGA monitor. Teddy owned a 3Com PalmPilot PDA at high school age and an Intel 386DX w/MMX technology PC in his university years.
His computer know-how and interest nurtured him into his first business partnership with a friend building custom computers for sale to customers who look for alternatives in purchasing major brands from retail stores. His partner moved on to a timepieces and video gaming business. Teddy decided to pursue Information Technology and studied a 9-month full course in Information Technology Institute (ITI Toronto) where he graduated with a Diploma in IT. He then started his first company, Tedson’s Hobbies and Technology inaugurated in 2001, engaging in numerous R/C model events.
In 2005, Teddy had a business relationship with a company where he provided printer services, namely HP, Lexmark, and Xerox at the time. After a long association with this company, Teddy headed into an exciting partnership working for the biggest brands in hospitality. He had to travel from country to country serving brand-name hotels like Marriott, Hilton, Warwick, Four Seasons, and Shangri-La. His role was to connect hotel network infrastructure with Wi-Fi and PMS systems that link up hotel staff and guest networks, mainly in North America and worldwide.
Teddy has acquired tremendous experience in IT and related technologies and has further expanded into serving various major brands in Senior Residences across the GTA.
His final years with the company landed him in a remarkable 2-years major project in hospitality. Teddy had a contract to install a unique Wi-Fi management system and Ruckus Wireless Access points for Choice Hotels International across Canada. Teddy’s most regarded sidekick partner, Max, whom he met in Montreal, Quebec works together in conquering 47 properties with an average of 2 properties in just one week, which was amazing.
In 2019, a new partnership was born to pursue more diversity in industries. Teddy is a City of Toronto contractor engaging in various projects.
All of this has led to the biggest year for Teddy’s career is to have met Filip Kunsten at the beginning of 2020. Meeting Filip is a dream come true in breathing new life and opportunities to build a business together. Never would Teddy have imagined meeting Filip has been the missing gear towards the next chapter in his IT career. Filip is smart, supportive and he has never found a better person to be partnered up with within the business. For once, Teddy felt there was hope to serve a bigger community in IT who needed our services. With Filip, nothing is impossible.
This is the year 2021, I look forward to many more years working with Filip to build a better Kunsten Technologies. Together with our combined efforts, you can count on us to provide our best service and knowledge possible. It is truly Technology at Your Fingertips!
