Rich brings a Renaissance-worthy resume to his position at TMPG. He earned a BSc degree in geology from the University of Auckland near his home in New Zealand. Following a two-year stint with an exploration mining company in the West Australian outback, Rich dusted off his boots and earned a postgraduate degree in Multi-media and programming. At that point, his digital career was off and running. Wanting to formalize his passion for art, he went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Art and Design at the Auckland University of Technology.
Prior to joining TMPG in 2011, Rich held development and programming positions at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Starwood Hotels Global USA, Fujifilm and Auckland University. Since arriving at TMPG, Rich has succeeded in developing comprehensive software solutions that automate our mission-critical internal and client-facing processes. This enables us to operate at maximum efficiency and bring our clients to market faster, while giving them total oversight of their programs.
Rich spends his spare time translating his passions for art, science and physical computing into amazingly complex Arduino-driven interactive sculptures of human anatomy. Rich’s idea of a relaxing vacation is trekking the Andes with his wife, and to date he has travelled to over 25 countries. Even on holiday, Rich puts his artistic sensibilities to use, capturing magnificent photographs of his travels.
Rich will be running unopposed this year in the vote for “TMPG’s most interesting man.”
