David Leavitt, President and Founder of A1 Assets, Inc. and Refresh Computers, is a lifetime resident of the Orlando, Florida area. David built his businesses from the ground up and the success of Refresh Computers is a reflection of hard work and his morals, with the very simple motto – “treat others as you would want to be treated.” David instills this in all of his employees and asks them to work with all customers in this same manner. David has been in the computing and electronics business for over 35 years, and jokingly refers to himself as ‘just another old nerd’.

David Leavitt graduated from Winter Park High School and attended the University of Central Florida. After a brief stint in College, David enlisted in the US Air Force to support his country and to further his education in electronics. After 4 years in the military, David sought and gained employment with Nortel Networks, where he worked as a technician, engineer, manager, and eventually in a senior management position. In his senior management role, David was responsible for over 400 employees nationwide, on projects worth several hundred million dollars, to include customers such as AT&T, Sun Microsystems, HP, and others.


Andre Klass is also a life-long resident of Central Florida, who started working full-time in the computer technology field while still in high school. He obtained his A+ certification at age 16, and got his first job at a local flight simulation company right after his 17th birthday. At the age of 20, Andre joined the retail crew at the Refresh Computers store in Longwood, where he became the company's lead sales & technical associate, responsible for customer service, public presentations, social media and marketing, and website and e-commerce administration.

The Latest Headlines You Need To Know

  • Thousands of people in Central Florida plan to attend the March for Our Lives march in downtown Orlando, as part of a nationwide movement. The main message is to demand stronger gun laws from their representatives and push for safer schools and put an end to gun violence and mass shootings. The rally is set to start at Lake Eola Park at 1 p.m. and end at the Pulse Night Club at 4 p.m.. The rally is hosted by The Florida Resistance and NeverAgain UCF, a coalition of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High alumni at UCF. High school students in Central Florida and members of the Orlando community are also expected to participate as well.  The riding app Lyft is also reportedly offering free transportation to the Marches, but not from it. If you plan to attend the event, here is the rally route: It is also recommended by NeverAgain UCF that if you plan to attend, to arrive early in order to avoid congestion. There will reportedly be wheelchair accessibility in a specific area near the stage.  Sunrail will also not be able to operate today for the rally.
  • After watching lawmakers agree to two bills this week dealing with guns and school safety in the aftermath of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Democrats say the gun violence marches around the nation on Saturday have the chance to change the political dynamic on gun control in the Congress. “Their hope gives me hope,” Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) said of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, and others who have joined in calling for action on gun violence. “Their determination gives me determination,” Nelson said at a U.S. Capitol news conference, even as he and other Democrats again acknowledged that they are far from having the votes to press ahead with gun control plans. This Saturday, students will lead marches across our country to demand action and pass commonsense gun safety legislation. They just want our schools and communities to be safe. That is certainly not too much to ask, we owe it to them to get something done. #MarchForOurLives pic.twitter.com/2mTVx1OMQK — Bill Nelson (@SenBillNelson) March 22, 2018 Among the plans that Democrats have focused on in recent weeks include: + The Manchin-Toomey ‘universal background checks’ bill, which would require checks for almost all private gun sales. + A federal law raising the minimum age to purchase a weapon to 21, mirrored on a law just passed by the state of Florida. + A ban on the sale of weapons like the AR-15. + Limits on high-capacity ammunition magazines. “We have an important role to play in insuring that no students should ever be afraid to walk down the hallway of their school,” said Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), whose district includes Parkland, Florida. Common-sense gun laws will save lives and uphold the 2nd Amendment. Our 21 to Buy Act follows the new standard set in FL & is the least we can do to keep our communities safe. Thanks to Republicans @TomRooney @RepPeterKing @RepCurbelo and Democrats @RepJayapal @RepCharlieCrist pic.twitter.com/z8atv06G8X — Rep. Ted Deutch (@RepTedDeutch) March 22, 2018 “It is our job, and everyone working in that building behind us, to pass laws, to keep our communities safe,” Deutch said at a news conference outside the U.S. Capitol. But the last five weeks were also a reminder of the difficulty of acting on any gun-related legislation – no matter how minor it might be. The “Fix NICS” bill approved this week as part of a giant spending bill was bipartisan, yet it also had some sharp opposition from Republicans in the House. And that makes the idea of the ‘Buy 21’ bill, or any ban on assault weapons, difficult to see getting through the Congress, unless there is major change in the makeup of the U.S. House and Senate. “You know the politics, but you got to start somewhere,” said Nelson. “This is the first step at the federal level.” “There is no better example of the youth of our country becoming engaged, than in this march,” said Deutch.
  • A Creston, Iowa, family of four that was previously reported missing in Mexico has been found dead. KCCI reported that 41-year-old Kevin Sharp, his wife, 38-year-old Amy Sharp, and their children, 12-year-old Sterling and 7-year-old Adrianna were found dead on a tourist condo complex in Tulum, Mexico, a tourist area. The Associated Press reported that the developer of the complex declined to comment. >> Read more trending news  “The Sharps have been located. They were found last night in their condo deceased,” a relative named Ashli Peterson wrote on Facebook, according to The Des Moines Register. “There was no foul play! At this time that is all the information we have.  “Please respect the family at this time as they go through the grieving process. Thank you for all the posts, shares, and kind words,” the post said.  Tulum is in the Quintana Roo state of Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula. A March 16 travel advisory from the U.S. Department of State said there was a level 2 advisory in the state due to crime. There were no restrictions on U.S. government employees for travel in that state, which has other tourist areas, such as Cancun and Cozumel. On Thursday, relatives filed a missing persons report through the U.S. Embassy in Mexico, KCCI reported. According to Peterson’s original post, the family had not been in contact with relatives after letting them know they made it to their condo safely. Related: U.S. issues level 4 ‘do not travel’ advisory for 5 states in Mexico Creston Police Chief Paul Ver Meer said the family had not boarded their flight from Cancun, Mexico, back to the U.S. “It’s a very sad day for the Sharp family and the city of Creston as a whole,” Ver Meer said. “We’ll work through this together.” Ver Meer said there was no sign of traumatic injury and autopsies are being conducted in Mexico. Results are pending.  
  • Kissimmee police charged a man with murder in the case of a headless body found outside on the road.
