Richard looks at solving technical problems as an opportunity to advance his skills. With more than 16 years of experience in the IT industry troubleshooting electronics and computer software/hardware, he sees himself as a critical thinker and is a continual learner of all things technical.
Richard manages all information technology and telecommunications at KDC. He has been an automation front-end developer for 10 plus years and loves all stages of Building Automation Systems development.
Richard’s hobbies include building automation programming, front-end development, and anything related to industrial/commercial building control. He also loves architectural material design, and architectural renderings making him a good fit for a real estate company.
Richard routinely reads self-help books, technical white-papers, software documentation, user guides and hardware installation. Reading is something he believes is crucial for developing the mind and has been key to his success. That along with strong listening skills is one of the most important traits of a successful IT admin in his eyes.
“I try to listen twice as much as I talk to better understand what it is being said. Troubleshooting is always difficult, especially when it comes to technology and listening helps you better grasp the needs of others.”
Richard has developed his industry expertise via continuing education at the University of North Texas, and other recognized sources with over 400 hours of IT certification courses (on campus and online), and he continues industry specific education by obtaining new and relevant IT certifications annually.
When he’s not wrapped up in the technical details, he’s spending time with his daughter, at cheerleading competitions, and spending time with his family and friends.
