Hi, I'm Rick Kippert.

After over 15 years experience as a graphic designer and art director working with marquee clients in both the B2B and B2C space, I decided to follow my passion for software development. In February 2018, I completed an fully-immersive software development bootcamp specializing in HTML/CSS, JavaScript, SQL, Git/Github, C# and ASP.NET where I received an overall grade of 98.82%.

I am a highly creative and multi-talented Junior Software Developer candidate. I possess strong knowledge of object-oriented programming and application development. I have been consistently commended by instructors for my programming abilities, grasp of multiple technologies and attention to detail. I have over a decade of experience in web and U/I design. I am an outgoing self-starter, a team-player and a multi-tasker.
