Richard Winn has worked with computers since the early days (he got a Commodore 64) when they first came out. He was working in Food and Beverage in Las Vegas, but his love of all things computer was sparked.  He ran his Bulletin Board System (BBS) back in the day on a dial-up 300-baud modem. He was self-taught on most things computer related, including BASIC programming. Richard worked his way up to being the Director of Food and Beverage in one of the Casino/Hotels.  He got bored with this and decided to do something more stimulating. He was looking for a challenge.
