About Roy Hagen

Roy Hagen has been providing computer-related services to institutions and individuals for more than a dozen years. His initial involvement in computer technology was in the Salem, Massachusetts, public schools where he worked for 35 years teaching and, for the last several years, serving as their first Technology Director. He developed and maintained the district web site and provided training and technical support for their staff of over 800 while leading the district in meeting the Massachusetts Department of Education technology standards.

For the last three years, Roy has worked as a freelance web designer, a photo researcher and illustrator for Addison Wesley Pearson, a major book publisher in Boston, and has worked in many technical roles for Hagen Gallery, a local watercolor and jewelry studio run by his daughter, Gina, and his wife, Marylou. Recently he has done a major revision of the Salem Public Schools website, which has been praised by the staff and administration, and has created and maintains brand new websites for J. Martinoli & Sons Building & Renovating and Warneck Law Offices.

Before becoming involved in computer technology, Roy ran a very successful TV Production program at Salem High School for over ten years with no fewer than six of his students moving into successful careers in television with CNN, ESPN, Paramount Television (now CBS Television Studios), and FOX-TV.

His college training was in music, with a Bachelors Degree in Music Education and a Masters Degree in Music Theory and Composition from UMass Lowell. In addition to teaching music in grades K-12, he also sang for ten years in the New England Conservatory Alumni Chorus which performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Roy conducted the Polymnia Choral Society in Melrose, MA, and served as Music Director for a local church for ten years, directing their choirs and serving as cantor. Before that, he was the vocalist/bassist in the Tony Alvino Trio, playing for weddings and club engagements.

Roy enjoys attending classical music concerts, watching baseball (especially the Boston Red Sox), playing guitar, and bowling.
