Richard is a Digital Marketer, with a background in Finance, Game Development and Graphic Design
He was born in 1988 in the hilly West Virginia, where he also schooled up to high school. Not one to shun a bit of adventure, he attended university on the other side of the Atlantic. He went on to get a Finance degree from one of the leading universities in Austria.
But, as fate would have it, he became an established Content Marketer right after college. Thanks to the competitive streak of his digital marketing colleagues, however, he decided to branch out.
This saw him first start with a course on Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. These opened up new career prospects for him: as a Graphic Designer, then as a graphic artist for video games.
Things all seemed set. That’s at least up to the point when he landed a job in banking. The combination of Design and Finance might have made him a Junior Designer for the bank he worked for, but it also stroked a new interest in him: Game Programming. As a result, he was deeply involved in his bank’s introduction of gamification to motivate staff.
He is a self-taught programmer. He enjoys using Python, Java, and all things open-source.
