Richard is a native Winnipegger, born, raised, educated and employed. A graduate of St. John’s High and the University of Winnipeg, Richard is a lifelong fan of Rainbow Stage, and many years ago played a tree in a junior production of Rumpelstilskin (and was the best tree an audience ever did see…). Post-stage career, he has spent 40 years in accounting and finance, contributing professionally to business and non-profit organizations at all levels. Richard is a strong believer in all things family, and is devoted husband to Valerie, father to Evan, and grandfather to Adelynn. He enjoys winter vacations in the Caribbean or Mexico and spends part of the summer at one of Manitoba’s outstanding lakes. When time allows, he keeps fit by cycling, swimming, and snorkelling.
