About Us

Why I started Whispering Dragons.

Since getting into business, Whispering Dragons is the third company I have launched. My first two were video game development focused, where we had a lot of fun working within the industry. Sadly, it does cost a fortune to keep a game studio running and moving forward. Interestingly enough, it was about midway through my second experience with running a business when I found a way to create a steady revenue stream for the game studio: through IT services, providing for consumers and business to business companies. We stumbled upon this opportunity by securing our first major client over a very long weekend. It was during New Years, and this company was shut down full across the nation. My partner Daniel and I, alongside another business partner at the time, spent three days working tirelessly around the clock, running on little sleep, helping their company get back up and running by the first of the year.. If we hadn’t been able to accomplish the task, their business would have closed their doors for good. This is when we saw the potential we had and knew we had to offer our services to business owners who needed a reliable IT consulting services. A few months later, Daniel and I founded Whispering Dragons in order to provide that kind of service to all of our clients.


How Whispering Dragons got its name

The part Dragon is about fond memories for us. It is a way to remember during the worst of times to hold on to the happy moments, as those are the parts that will get you through any hard times you must endure. Whispering is a ploy on the owner, as he is said to be soft spoken – so it was a fun way to play off of that. As for the “S”.. it is the most important part of the name. It represents the true meaning behind the business. As Whispering Dragons is not driven for any other reason than the community – the “S” represents the people we grow with, whether it be the clients or the community itself. We love watching our staff, clients, community, and world grow within our network since starting Whispering Dragons.

Why I created a business built off of support.

While I was growing up, I use to help my grandfather when he was out working as an Electrician and Plumber. During that time, I saw how he cared about each and every client – and especially when he would give them a break when the clients needed it. As I developed this business, I have been focusing on keeping the same understanding as what my grandfather did at the core of Whispering Dragons. We decide to focus on caring for the clients and helping where needed to ensure our business kept our ideals in mind.
