A long time professional modder, his career is as old as modding itself – some would say he even invented the concept. Richard has been building custom computers for Ballistix since the brand has existed, and continues to think outside the box when it comes to custom creations. Richard and his work partner, Travis Jank, started Nerdy Ninjas as a high-end modding partnership that has been featured on TV shows like The Vanilla Ice Project, and has built high-end mods such as the Tracer build. Richard has been a regular attendee of PDXLAN in Portland, Oregon, where you can frequently find him with a new monster creations at every event. Using laser-cutting techniques and insane loop bending skills, Richard's creations will often push the boundaries of what modding is.
