Rick Bradley
President, OG Consulting


Rick Bradley was conceived a hillbilly but programmed his way out of the womb and into a lucrative position as punch-card eater at the local Burroughs plant by age 3. These days he is recently released from a multi-year sentence to work in the “enterprise” on one of the largest Ruby on Rails applications on the planet (you may remember him talking about it at the 1st Railsconf). These days he has his hitch on, his house on (which seems to involve a lot of getting his hammer on and his duct tape on), and his Ruby consulting on, as part of Flawed Logic (a wholly-pwned subsidiary of OG Consulting) for clients too distracted to know any better.
