After a visit with Shea in sunny South Florida – we travel west and sit down with Corey Bean, Senior Phone Surgeon at the Urgent Care located inside Nebraska Furniture Mart in Omaha, Nebraska.
Corey joined the Phone Surgeons team a year ago – he has been fixing tech & saving digital lifelines for years! Previously a technician at Sprint, Corey not only leads the Omaha Phone Surgeons’ Urgent Care – he has taken on additional administrative roles behind the scenes on the Phone Surgeons #SupportSquad playing a key role in the company’s growth. Corey actually went to school for animation with a goal of doing traditional, hand drawn cartoons! He still gets to work with his hands every day repairing phones and puts his creative background on display helping with the Phone Surgeons local Facebook page.
5 Things to know about Corey Bean
Favorite thing to do in Omaha: Hometown hero & boxing champion Terrence Crawford has afforded us lots of opportunities to see live fights. Omaha is also a great town for indie rock & I go to as many shows as I can.
Favorite Musician: Beach House, Radiohead, Bjork, MF DOOM, Chocolate Genius, Ghostface…
Worst break you’ve fixed: I’ve seen plenty of wild things, but the dreaded iPad 2 power flex gives me nightmares. Damaging that is a mistake you only make once…!
Enjoys most about being a Phone Surgeon: I like the fun of opening new devices & figuring out their quirks.
What do you do when you’re not fixing phones & tablets?: I collect books & I read quite a bit. It’s odd, but I love learning the histories of different technologies & industries. I’m also huge boxing fan!
If you live in Omaha and break your iPhone, iPad or Samsung device – or happen to be visiting Omaha, stop into the iconic Nebraska Furniture Mart – swing by the Phone Surgeons’ Urgent Care located near the wireless department and say hi to Corey!
