Richard was born in North Carolina, but headed west to Oregon in 1992. He lives in Salem with his lady and two chihuahua puppies, Frank and Beans. He attended Portland State University where he got his degree in Finance. In previous career incarnations, he did Sales and Finance, was in the restaurant industry for 20 years, and had a stint as a standup comedian in Hollywood. In his free time, he loves any type of outdoor sports (hiking, fishing, hunting), bowling with his league, and travel. He’s also a fantasy football expert, so we expect he will clean house for the next office bracket.
