Welcome to Richie Bartlett's website!



About this site:
This site is my sounding board for not only my professional life but creative ideas as well. It's a place for my family and friends to keep up with me. My interests and travels are documented for all to enjoy. If you should have a question, please click on the "contact me" link at the top and send a message.
NOTE: Site theme is currently under a redesign! I hope to have the new layout and design of this site completed by the end of this year.

History:
I'm 35 years old. I grew up in Dallas, Texas and graduated from Texas State Technical College in Waco, TX as a double major. I hold Electronics Engineering and Computer Science (related) diplomas.
I've traveled most of the States except for the northwestern parts. I have been to Bussan, Korea and Vancouver, Canada. I have been living in Japan since 2008. I love most of Japan. But like any place you stay long enough, you eventually find the things that annoy you. For as long as the balance of things I like exceeds that for which I disagree with, I will continue to live in Japan.
I've never been afraid to confront any challenge. I usually make it a point to learn something new everyday. I believe that the moment you stop learning is the moment you start dying. Life starts to become boring if it becomes too comfortable. I don't mind stepping outside my comfort zone and learn something new from time to time. This is a great way to expand one's mind and experience in life.

Geographical Location: Japan
