Jamie Penner

Jamie Penner

Founder and Owner

Jamie’s background in the computer industry dates back to 1983 and he began his foray into the world of electronic mail and communications shortly thereafter. In 1990, he developed software to act as a gateway between Internet Newsgroups and much smaller BBS networks. In 1994, Jamie began his work on establishing himself as one of the starters in the Nanaimo Internet industry. His initial pioneering work led to one of the first uses of a server running Linux to have multiple IP addresses on a single network adapter. As well, he developed one of the first web based email management applications which are so widely in use today. Using these skills and new products, he founded Nisa Online Systems and later went on to be the first Nanaimo based ISP to offer full ISDN, 56K, and analog dialup services, as well as establishing Nanaimo’s first co-location data centre in 1998. Jamie then moved on in 2002 to establish V3 Mediaworks.  His commitment to maximum uptime for servers and services and ensuring that customers needs are always met defines the character, attitude and reputation of V3.

When not building servers, websites and answering emails, Jamie is likely to be found with a Fender Stratocaster in hand, eating sushi or posting pictures of his granddaughter.

Nicole Schaefer

Nicole Schaefer

Content Specialist

Nicole was raised on technology and fast paced design. Her love for the arts, the English language, and sitting in front of a computer screen makes content writing a hobby that comes naturally to her.

After briefly moving away from Vancouver Island, she came running back to be with family and live in paradise. When she’s not keeping busy running around after a toddler and working around nap time, she enjoys going for long drives to appreciate the scenery and sing like no one’s judging.

Angela has always loved and appreciated the written word. Her passion for reading, writing, editing, managing, and publishing online content is a huge part of her life. Her advanced social media and Internet-based communication makes up for her lack of going out and being a social butterfly. When she’s not working with online content and SEO, Angela is busy enjoying her morning/afternoon coffee, strolling through her favourite YouTube channels, reading and writing hard copy content such as books, and taking walks around beautiful downtown Nanaimo BC, where she currently resides.
