At LithTech Rick was chartered with advancing the multi-player technology of the LithTech engine with a goal of supporting the creation of massively-multi-player LithWorlds. Under his direction the LithTech 3.0 engine shipped with rearchitected networking, an advanced, view-based distributed object system capable of working with high packet loss rates, an integrated relevant set mechanism, view-based extrapolative prediction, high-performance multi-threaded server I/O, and a Linux version of the standalone server.

Prior to joining LithTech, Rick was the Senior Director of Online Technology for Humongous Entertainment and Cavedog Entertainment, where he implemented the multi-player networking for Total Annihilation and led the development teams that created the Boneyards online gaming system and the GT Interactive e-commerce system.

Before joining Humongous, Rick was Network Technical Director in the entertainment division of Starwave Corporation. At Starwave, Rick designed and developed the scalable server system for Castle Infinity, one of the Internet's first graphical Massively Multi-Player games.
