Adam Richards recently joined the Advantage team—more specifically, the eCommerce and Enterprise Integration team led by Matt Varblow. As a part of that group, he has worked on deployment systems and software modifications.
A recent graduate of the University of Michigan, Adam earned his Bachelor of Science degree in computer science earlier this year from the College of Engineering. Although he had always had an interest in the IT side of computers, such as building and fixing them, Adam found his niche when he took his first programming class. Some of his favorite classes included Operating Systems and User Interface Design. “Operating Systems taught me a lot about low-level computing at a conceptual level,” says Adam, “and User Interface Design was very useful for getting a working knowledge of the psychology behind usability and how to test for and fix problems around it.”
A native of Muskegon, Michigan, Adam now lives in Ann Arbor, sharing an apartment with two roommates. When he isn’t working, Adam enjoys reading, video games, and going to football and hockey games. He is also active at New Life Church.
Welcome, Adam, to the Advantage family!
