MCE123 was originally founded under the "MCE" brand in 1999, which corresponded to the first three letters of the paternal biological family name that was given to the Company Founder on or around October 18th, 1983. It was developed because people kept misspelling his last name, and he kept telling them "It's M, C, E...!!!". The brand has also been referred to as "McE", though McElhiney prefers it being represented in all caps for image consistency purposes. At the time of the company's inception, Patrick Russell McElhiney (PRM) was attending high school in Turlock, California. His first client was T.N.T. Productions Disc Jockey Service, owned and operated by Robert Pacheco, from Modesto, California - later reorganized into TNT Productions, Inc. registered under the State of California only.
"MCE" was later known as "MCE Webdesign", which was later renamed to "MCE123" when mce123.com was originally purchased in 2002. Note that the MCE Logo is a separate Copyright held by McElhiney, while inclusive of the MCE123 Service Mark. If the company is purchased at a later date, or if it goes public, McElhiney retains the rights of how the MCE Logo is used - as it represents him personally, professionally, while he realizes that the image of the company revolves around the logo, as well as the registered wordmark "MCE123".
Patrick R. McElhiney graduated from Turlock High School, and then attended Merced Community College between 2002 and 2004 to study under the Computer Science Associate's degree program, including major studies with the Cisco Systems Regional Network Academy, where he received training in both the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) and Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) programs, including classes in Merced, Atwater, Los Banos, and Fresno, CA. At the time, wireless internet was only starting to become available.
In 2004, Patrick McElhiney changed his major to Business Administration, and began studying at Modesto Junior College. He was elected the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of a classroom-born marketing organization, in which he managed the operations of several different departments that put on "Party in the Park: A Spring Extravaganza" - put on to advertise for a local car dealership, American Chevrolet, at the college grounds.
In 2005, Patrick McElhiney designed a major website for Turlock City News, which featured a fully editable newspaper format, including business listings, banner advertisements, chat rooms, bulletin boards, and a classified advertisement section.
In 2006, PRM's parents divorced, and he moved with his mother to 12 Renaud Ave, Dover, NH, where his maternal grandmother had lived. He attended college again at McIntosh College in Dover between 2007 and 2008, receiving the Faculty Award and high honors with an Associate's Degree in Business Management.
In 2007, PRM moved the company to his mother's new home, located at 84 Nuthatch Loop, Barrington, NH, where he branched out - attending Daniel Webster College for a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing Management, obtained in 2010. He then attended Franklin Pierce Law Center, where he studied Intellectual Property law, which he used to formulate over 1,000 technological invention concepts based on his backgrounds in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Computer Science, Business Administration & Management, and Marketing Management. Topics of inventions included telepathy, software design, computer design including quantum computing / optical computing, and satellite design.
Patrick Russell McElhiney worked extensively on developing his company between 2011 and 2015, in which he produced over 20,000 pages of documentation, explaining business processes, invention concepts, and computer software designs - including running the processes of 13 different departments within his Sole Proprietorship, which he was preparing to incorporate and take on investors.
In 2016, Patrick R. McElhiney began attending a Master's Degree program in Information Technology at the University of New Hampshire, Manchester - where he is concentrating in Project Management and further developing his over 1,000 new invention concepts. As of April 2017, Patrick McElhiney has produced over 30 terabytes of data through his business activities, most of which have been Classified under military intelligence laws, due to the complexity of the inventions, and the forethought of the concepts, most of which are at least 15 years until being able to be prototyped - with some being unavailable to Patent for over 30 years in the future.
Most of all, Patrick Russell McElhiney is an expert in the area of telepathy technology, including its security and privacy impacts, the need for quantum computing including for an optical computing system that uses entanglement to compute results, and military surveillance, as well as military counter-intelligence development within contested environments. He has turned down a lucrative career with the Defense Intelligence Agency to focus on his company's works, which specifically help the U.S. Intelligence Community, while he has also taken on less intelligence critical positions, such as with Staples, Inc. between 2015 and 2017, in which he developed a 40+ page document that detailed thousands of problems with the organization's business processes.
Patrick R. McElhiney is currently the Communications Director in his Object-Oriented Software Engineering class, in which he has written code almost entirely for an entire social media website that was specified by his Faculty Advisor, Dr. Michael Jonas, with the help and support of over 20 programmers, working in an AGILE-inspired environment. He will be attending full-time in the Summer session of 2017, including an independent study class by Dr. Jonas to prepare the MeAndYou Social Media website for its launch within the UNH Intranet, including to the Manchester and Durham campuses. Specifically, his major contributions have been to the Database and Front-End teams, which integrated their sub-systems using a custom XAMPP environment on a Windows Server - something that McElhiney hasn't done before, as he's most fluent with LAMP environments.
MCE123 isn't just about Patrick McElhiney. It's also about his contributions to society, which is what makes it a pseudo-Corporation at the ready, while still offering regular Marketing and Information Technology services, as it always has since 1999. They say that an organization is only as good as its leadership, and that is what Patrick McElhiney has been working on developing since 1999. He truly seeks to inspire others to develop their own companies, and do business - hopefully with MCE123 and its vast multitude of prospective clients, clients, and vendors in the multitude of industries in which MCE123 operates in.
