About Rick

I've been in the IT industry for 30 years and now hold an executive position with 143 people who report to me. I think veterans (I am one) make fantastic employees with great attitudes and a desire to succeed. This is why I'm in the program. I have a BS in Computer Science with Post Graduate work in Artificial Intelligence.
