Arkulas Beyer, President
Arkulas has been accompanying his father on computer service calls since he was 2 years old and began honing his PC fixing skills at the age of 12, and by 16 was running networks all on his own! After High School, Arkulas enlisted in the army and served in Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. While in Kuwait, Arkulas decided that rather than reenlisting for another 3 years, the best decision for his future would be to return to New Mexico and start a computer repair business based out of Rio Rancho!
In 2014 Arkulas worked with Carl to start TechNuts – a dream they had both shared for nearly 10 years! Together, they ran TechNuts from home until growth required them to upgrade offices. Today, TechNuts is a 6-employee operation with a convenient Rio Rancho location.
Arkulas has a wealth of experience, and brings his fresh, young perspective to every project! What Arkulas loves most about IT is how dynamic the field is – there’s always something to learn! Even two similar challenges rarely ever have the same answer.
In his spare time, you can usually find Arkulas with his friends or working on his car, a 2013 Subaru WRX!
Carl Beyer, Tech Manager
Carl earned his degree in Agricultural Engineering at Cornell University, but quickly realized his favorite classes were related to computers, not his major. Rather than go back to school for computer science, he looked to the Army and was given his golden opportunity—Computer Programming for the Military.
Carl proudly served in the United States Army from 1985 to 1989. There he had access to and serviced the latest computer technology– the IBM Personal Computer, which was the first standard Personal Computer with Disk Operating System (DOS). While in the Army, Carl also had the opportunity to work on the first Novel Network—the first multi-platform network operating system ever released. Carl also created classified programming for the top brass in the Army, which lead to a stint consulting working for the staff at the Pentagon—programming military withdrawals from overseas operations.
While in the District of Columbia, Carl met his wife— now of 30+ years. And, when they decided to have children they made the decision to move to beautiful New Mexico. Here, Carl was employed by the Federal Government and worked on cutting edge technology—which lead to Carl setting up the first email system for the United States Department of the Interior.
In 1997, Carl started his first computer consulting company, which lead to the development of TechNuts with his son, Arkulas. Outside of computer work, Carl enjoys camping and spending time with his family.

Rafiel is a recent hire, joining our team in January of 2019, but has since become a vital component of our team as our go-to part-timer. Determined and eager, he tackles his work with the zeal of someone who has grown up alongside technology and loves to make it work. Rafiel believes that technology “is a remarkable tool that allows us to work and express ourselves in boundless ways”. He is currently pursuing a degree in Software Development from Western Governor’s University (WGU) because he wants to create more ways in which we can interface and utilize our technology. He enjoys working at Technuts because although he finds creation fun, he knows that learning how to fix computers when they inevitably malfunction is a valuable skill. Rafiel graduated from Gadsden High School in Anthony, NM in 2010 and later received his associates in General Studies from NMSU. Afterwards he joined the NM Army National Guard as a Signal Support Specialist and is currently still serving. Rafiel’s favorite things to do is being a good partner for his fiance, playing video games, watching movies, cooking, landscaping his yard, writing, and would love to learn archery one day.
