INTRODUCING

ROBERT LEO RUGG

It all began with a bunch of 0's and 1's. My father rooted me into networking and IT as a child. My love for electronics, retro-style gaming and music brewed the perfect storm that developed my passion for high end audio/video and control systems. I began with custom installation over 15 years ago, and today I project manage, engineer, program, install and teach a fleet of 65+ technicians by working at thier side in the field, developing their installation techniques, customer service interactions and programming intricacies.

Interest

Growing up, video games and music have always held a special place in my heart. In the last few years I have reinvented myself physically and now focus on proper nutrition and fitness. I've studied the Japanese language and culture for some years now, and have always been fascinated by computers, software, and anything similar.
