Richie loves helping people. It’s as plain and simple as that. Having the ability to bring value whether that’s through hard work and a little sweat, knowledge and experience, or even simply by connecting someone to a person that can fulfill their needs. His love for technology and helping people led Richie to a career in complex, high tech sales with Arbor Solutions Inc.
Richie has what some people would call a borderline obsession with the IBM Power Systems scale out family, running IBM i, AIX, and Linux on Power. He also enjoys working with the dev team to build out solutions around Application development services (PHP, RPG, & .NET) and the IBM Cognos Business Analytics stack of products.
Over the last couple years he has seen a high demand for Open source application development, Analytics, virtualization, high availability, and cloud Infrastructure Solutions. As a result much of his work has been focused on configuring solutions in these arenas.
