I'm Richard. I build software for a living. Currently that means a lot of Ruby on Rails, but I've dabbled in PHP, Perl, and JavaScript. And I first really got going with Excel, which is where I learned how to think like a machine.

I'm a husband, as well as a father to three (mostly) wonderful children. I came into this world and grew up in Los Angeles, California, but Portland, Oregon is the place that we now call home. I try to lift heavy things on a regular basis.

Other than this website, you can find me on the web at LinkedIn, GitHub, StackOverflow, and Twitter. Or you can always feel free to shoot me an email at rico@toasterlovin.com.
