Outside of work

When not working, Richard enjoys getting outdoors camping and fishing with his family and friends. His greatest satisfaction however comes from spending quality time with his wife and 2 young children.

He hopes that one day his golf will improve to a point where finally understands how it can be called a relaxing day out.
