About ReigningPages

ReigningPages IS Michael Bivens. In the 1980's, shortly after moving from North Carolina to Ohio, my partner, Randy Rapp, and I owned a pet store which we named "It's Reigning Pets". Many year later I started up my online business and named it "ReigningPages". Both name are in reference to our first cocker spaniel, Appollonia's Purple Reign (name taken from the Prince movie "Purple Rain").

As to my educational background, I graduated from high school in 1980, and went on to study Computer Science for 3 1/2 years in college. When I left college (due to monetary issues), I had obtained a Speech and a Business Administration minor.

Through the years I have owned several computers (of course, this was all before the time of the internet). Then in 1995, a roommate purchased a new computer and that's all it took. Once again I was computing and now ONLINE! Within a year, I had purchased my own computer, domain (reigningpages.com), and a contract to run a local auto dealership's (Montrose Auto Group) website.

Moving on, I worked for three years as the "Internet Guy" for the Waikem Auto Group in Massillon, Ohio (where I watched over approximately 200 computers, and published a monthly online letter), before I branched back out onto my own, and now spend most of my time as the "Computer Tutor".
