About Me

Chuck Johnson (CJ) - Owner and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Piñon Deer Computers

Chuck Johnson (CJ), has been working with computers and related technology since the age of 15. As a Native American growing up near Española and also on the Oke-Owingeh Pueblo (San Juan Pueblo), he was on the leading edge of technology long before it became available mainstream as it is today. At the age of 24, he was already the owner of the popular and successful CJ Enterprises, Inc., that was responsible for selling computers and equipment to Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Piñon Deer Computers, a Native American owned and operated company, was founded in 1997 and is a registered vendor with the State of New Mexico. The company name was derived from the owner CJ’s Tewa name PaaT’oe, which means Piñon Deer.
