Lee W. Riemenschneider, Chief frog, Founder

    Lee W. Riemenschneider has been involved in embedded systems development since 1990, but started playing with software in 1980. He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering Technology from Purdue University. While at Purdue somewhere around 1985, he started something with Rick Rogers, Rick Armstrong, and a squeaky frog that turned into a band called Phrogs. Hence the "frog" in frogooa. (Sure it should be phrogooa, but Lee was never into the whole "Ph" for "f" fad that was going around.)
    In 1993, he was introduced to the Shlaer-Mellor method (now called Executable UML) by Cortland Starrett, and subsequently began specializing in Executable UML development. This is the source of the "ooa" in frogooa.
    Despite this levity of speech and company naming, Lee is quite serious about creating quality software.
