Hello my name is CoCo Hankerson and CoCo The Geek actually started off as a nickname for me because I was such a geeky person, doing production audio, repairing equipment, and offering tech support—so, I was known as the "geek" around town. When I started offering Free Electronic Recycling to people in my neighborhood, everyone assumed CoCo The Geek was a company and not an individual, so I built around that. The COVID 19 pandemic allowed me to go full force with my company due to the high increase in waste I was seeing. When I saw the need for my service, I just took a leap of faith. Especially since, my life has always revolved around electronics and just being a hands-on person.
Prior to starting Coco The Geek, I already had over 13 years of Audio and IT experience—both very technical fields—so, I was already doing the majority of what I do now. The only difference is my work is now on a larger scale and more focused on cutting the amount of AV Equipment that end up in the landfill. This is the beginning to an amazing adventure and I’m all here for it!
