Rick is a quick starter, digs in to the details and can be relied upon to be persistent in solving problems.
What sets Rick apart is his long term experience, a pragmatic approach to get a job done, coupled with a depth and breadth of knowledge. What impressed me about Rick was how fast he got up to speed on the domain specific problems, and then presented well thought out and well written proposals and solutions, weighting different alternatives.
Rick has demonstrated many times the ability to quickly master new technologies. Rick is able to untangle complex system requirements and produce practical, effective software designs.
