Lucas Peters was always a technology fanatic, at a young age he was interested in how computers were designed. At around 10 years old Lucas's first computer was a hand me down from a friend of the family, an old 5 ½ inch floppy disk computer that was only good for word processing. He decided since it didn't do anything exciting he would take it apart and lay out all the components on his bed. With all the parts scattered across his bed, his mother walked in the room and looked infuriated that he had ruined the computer! After she left, he started putting the computer back together, just as it was fully assembled and plugged in his mom came back in with his father to see what he had done. Looking in amazement, she said, “Did you put that together? Does it work?” “Of course it does”, Lucas replied, as he powered up the computer. Ever since that moment he pushed himself to learn everything he could about computers and electronic devices, and also built many custom computers.
After Lucas graduated from high school he decided he wanted to serve his country, he saw the war in Iraq as a good way to do that, so he joined the Marine Corps. While he was deployed overseas he served as a machine gunner on the turret of a Humvee, he quickly realized that he should also apply his electronics knowledge to better serve the Marines around him. The threat in Iraq at the time was Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s). Lucas decided to learn as much as he could about the way the IED’s were being built and the countermeasure systems that protected his fellow Marines. Lucas became a certified subject matter expert in electronic countermeasures for his platoon, teaching the Marines how the devices were being built, as well as, testing and fixing the electronic counter measure systems that were built into the military vehicles. At the end of his deployment he was awarded a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for his service.
When returning home from being deployed, Lucas decided to stay in the Marine Corps for another four-years. When the first iPhone came out, Lucas was among the first to jump on the bandwagon, it wasn't but two weeks before military training caused him to break his screen while it was in his pocket. Naturally, he decided to order the part and fix it himself. From that point on he developed a passion for portable device's, learning and reverse engineering every cell phone and tablet that he could get his hands on. A couple years later, he had the vision of www.iRepairFast.com
, a way to fix peoples devices all around the World, while still serving in the Military. Lucas created the website and ran the business out of the workshop at his house. Now Lucas is out of the Marine Corps, with two the iRepairFast local shops in Ponte Vedra, Florida
