My Name is Richard King. I was born and raised in Freeport,Grand Bahama which is located in the beautiful islands of the Bahamas[1]. I attended Catholic High School and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Business from the College of the Bahamas. I am the oldest of four kids. My hobbies include reading, swimming, dancing and fishing. In my spare time I enjoying learning about new computer software and applications.

Both of my parents are from the Bahamas and still live there. My mother is a school teacher and has been for 30 years now. She enjoys molding young minds and educating the future as she so proudly proclaims. My father is a banker and has been for 35 years. He loves money!!!! My only sister is a great volleyball player and even better mathematician!!! She enjoys computational science and statistics. Both of my brothers are in college.

New Interest

Cloud computing is a paradigm shift following the shift from mainframe to client–server in the early 1980s. Details are abstracted from the users, who no longer have need for expertise in, or control over, the technology infrastructure "in the cloud" that supports them. Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption, and delivery model for IT services based on the Internet, and it typically involves over-the-Internet provision of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources. It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet.
