RJ is one of the main programmers at RJ Technologies. He works on application development, maintains all current applications and performs the analysis for new projects. RJ specializes in C-Sharp and is an expert in SQL.
RJ grew up in Olmsted Falls, Ohio and then moved with his family to Russell, Ohio, where he commenced his sophomore year at West Geauga High. He played on travel leagues of both baseball and soccer from the age of six through his middle school years. Upon entering high school, he decided to lay down his cleats and concentrate on the clarinet and saxophone; which he played for both concert and marching bands. A huge Frank Lloyd Wright fan, RJ had dreams of becoming an architect from a very early age. Though he was accepted into the Architecture program at the University of Cincinnati, he soon realized his skills were more technologically based; at which point he started focusing on a career in IT. RJ attended Kent State University and then Lakeland Community College where he received an associate’s degree in networking and programming. In 2009, after working in the IT departments of two local companies, RJ decided it was time to join the team at RJ Technologies.
RJ truly enjoys technology and has a collection of gadgets to prove it. He also still enjoys playing organized sports and takes advantage of every opportunity to challenge his co-workers to a “friendly” game of table tennis. -…..and Ron thought having a ping-pong table at the office would be a nice way to relieve stress… RJ is a great lover of music and movies and his tastes are eclectic. He loves Bach to Led Zeppelin and Casa Blanca to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. He is also an automobile fanatic and an avid lover all things cars. In addition, RJ is quite apt in the kitchen. He loves to cook; a love he may have adopted from his mother, who is a professional chef.
RJ loves spending time with his fiancée, Melissa, who is a doctor of audiology. In the summer, they enjoy taking weekend trips to the Lake Erie Islands and they take full advantage of their season passes to Cedar Point. Their latest “favorite” past time has been planning their 2013 wedding.
We are grateful to have RJ Horning as part of our team at RJ Technologies.
