Our History


Creative Computer Downtown Laurel Office

Owners Bo Watts and Jason Vanderslice got their start in the computer service industry while still in junior high.

While enrolled at Stringer Attendance Center, Bo and Jason were employed by the State of Mississippi in a program called Tech Crews: Learning by Doing in Mississippi. This program opened doorways for computer-savvy students to apply their knowledge and skills in real business environments by performing computer services for local school districts.

This ignited a passion for all things technological in both Bo and Jason and led them both into working in the computer service industry after college. During this time, they realized that very few companies offered clients affordable, well-rounded services.

After years of working for “the man,” Bo and Jason decided to step out on a leap of faith and open their own IT business, Creative Computer, in May of 2008. As they say, “the rest is history.”

In 2009, Creative Computer began creating websites under the name C3 Web Studio. We are still creating websites, but we simplified our corporate structure by consolidating all services under the Creative Computer brand.
