Neil Sargisian: An Overview
Meet Neil Sargisian, an extraordinary individual who’s been dubbed “The Logician” by the Myers & Briggs personality test. With only 3% of the population sharing this trait, Neil stands out for his logical mindset.
A talented graphic designer and digital artist (among other things), you can find his artwork under the handle, “JediNeil,” – a nickname first given to him in 2009, after launching his first company, Jedi Web Service.
Neil was born April 16th, 1976 at 1:19 pm in Las Vegas, Nevada. Astrology enthusiasts would say that he is a triple threat with the Sun in Aries, Moon in Sagittarius, and Ascendant in Leo, all fire signs. This combination creates a magnetic personality that radiates confidence, enthusiasm, and a zest for life. But that’s not all, in Chinese Astrology, Neil is a Fire Dragon, known for their passion, ambition, and leadership qualities. This fiery combination makes Neil a natural-born leader, destined for greatness, and a true radiant star in the astrological universe.
Raised in the glitzy city of Las Vegas, Nevada on April 16th, 1976 at 1:19 pm. Neil’s childhood was marked by tragedy when his father, Leonard Sargisian, AKA Lenny Sargis, a beloved entertainer and talent manager, passed away before Neil’s third birthday. But despite this tragic loss, Neil was raised by a strong single mother who worked as a cocktail waitress at iconic casinos like Caesars Palace and the Rio. His grandparents also played a vital role in his upbringing, particularly his grandfather, Harvey, who served in the Air Force and retired as a high-ranking manager from the Nevada Test Site before becoming the biggest influence in Neil’s life.
Besides his grandfather, Neil was also heavily influenced by a father figure named Peter who his mother was engaged to for a few years when Neil was young. Between the ages of 6-8, Neil received three gifts from Peter that would change his life forever: a Tasco 525 telescope, a Tomy Omnibot 5402 Robot Butler, and an IBM PC Jr. These gifts sparked his early curiosity in astronomy, programmable electronics, A.I., and computer technology, leading to his passion for Space, IoT, and the power of the world wide web – shaping both his personal and professional life.
In a twist of fate, Neil became a big brother at age 13, when his half-sister was born on his 13th birthday. Neil was a huge influence in her life, helping to raise her as if he was her father during her first few years. Oh, and did we mention that the number 13 is his lucky number?

Neil’s also a man of many talents, with passions for dancing, art, cooking, and spending time with family and loved ones.
