Richard Iurilli graduated summa cum laude with his Bachelor of Arts in English from Rutgers University in 2013. Previously, he earned an Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts/English and an Associate of Applied Science in Computer Science/Network Administration and Support from Middlesex County College, where he graduated with highest honors. He has received multiple awards and distinctions for his academic and extracurricular work.
Richard currently works as a marketing associate for a media company in Northern New Jersey. Previously he worked as a copywriter for a costume retailer in Central New Jersey and as an English tutor at Rutgers’ Plangere Writing Center. He is always looking for ways to challenge himself utilizing his dual literary and technical background.
When Richard isn’t reading or writing for work or fun, he dedicates a lot of time to watching sports. As a fan of the New York Yankees and the San Jose Sharks, he is accustomed to winning but also familiar with soul-crushing defeat. He is one of approximately three people on Earth to have seen his favorite teams in two major sports blow 3-0 leads to their most-hated rivals in a best-of-7 series.
