Richard Lesh Biography

Matrix Rich

My name is Richard Lesh and this is my bio. I live in the St. Louis area, specifically Wentzville, MO. I'm married with three grown children and three cats.

I have been a consultant/entrepreneur/educator in the software engineering field for most of my 30+ year career. I have worked for companies such as Boeing, MasterCard, A.G. Edwards, and Monsanto. During this time I have developed a variety of web-based, stand-alone and server applications for the Windows, Macintosh, and various UNIX/Linux platforms using languages such as C/C++, Java, Perl, Python, JavaScript, Visual Basic, Swift and SQL. While I have worked on a number of web and desktop applications, I really enjoy doing large data processing work. Much of my industry experience has been doing this type of work storing and processing large databases containing a variety of data such as financial transactions, gene information, customer investment records, email retention records and aircraft maintenance data.

I hold a B.S. and an M.S. in mechanical engineering both from the University of Missouri-Columbia. My education focused on computer aided design, numerical analysis, simulation and computer graphics, which eventually lead me into the software engineering field.
