About Richard

I have 16 years as a blue chip tech consultant. I am uniquely gregarious and extroverted for a technologist. I am as hungry today as I was 16 years ago. I love technology and the never ending opportunities it brings.
Owned my own company for 13 years.
I have a broad and deep skill set and have worked in most areas (even embedded). I am genuinely interested in most topics. If you have a strong opportunity (notice I said opportunity, not just an idea) then we may be made in heaven.
I have considerable management and operations skills having managed teams upwards of 30 people.

I am focused on 2 opportunities currently that dovetail:
1. I am looking to grow a business in bots development and micro services.
2. I have an IOT concept that is early stage but development is currently underway.

I am all about LEAN startup and AGILE methodologies and quickly building and proofing concepts with actual sales.
