Rob Rypka

Senior Programmer

Rob grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. As the only child of two programmers, he had access to computers from birth, and took on various programming projects over the years. Rob studied computer science and mathematics at the University of Illinois here in Champaign-Urbana, specializing in graphics and animation. Stubbornly refusing to leave the area after graduation, he attempted to find a “real” programming job, only to end up at Volition.

When not working, Rob spends his time trying to keep up with his three daughters. He also plays the trombone in several bands in the area. He might have been pretty good if he had practiced more.
