Richard Piippo

Big Rapids, MI, United States

I was born in Rudyard, MI. A small town in the upper peninsula. Grew up on a farm spending my summers taking hay off the fields. Entered into college at Ferris State University in Big Rapids, MI in 1988. Majored in Automotive Body Repair and Visual communications. I was hired by Photographic Services at Ferris State University in 1996. Thanks to many technological advancements throughout the years, I have developed skills in video production, web programming, java coding, animation/special effects and drone piloting. This has allowed me to remain with the same department since 1996.
