A B O U T R I C H
Having spent 15 very happy years as an Artist Blacksmith, a road accident forced a change of career.
Although the move into theatre was somewhat unexpected, Richard completed a degree at Dartington College of Arts, and have subsequently immersed myself in as many areas of stage management and technology as I can, constantly refining my working practices, and actively researching and searching out the most challenging areas of work to broaden my skill-sets.
