Born in Belleville, Ont., Richard grew up in a large family whose bilingual parents sacrificed much to raise their nine children. An officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Richard's father instilled a strong but loving work ethic in his children while his mother taught them the value of love and sharing in a big household. An avid sportsman and athlete Richard went on to earn his University degree in Psychology and Sociology in Ottawa. Now a father of three married adult children and new grandfather, Richard is still active in sports and outdoor activities. He enjoys sharing these experiences with his family.
Having lived in different places during his working life Richard has always enjoyed engaging people to discover their wants and needs and helping them fulfill them. For the past 25 years he has worked steadfastly in the Ottawa area as a licensed Realtor assisting clients all over the region with their real estate goals.
