After years of working in the industry and owning a business, Richard decided it was time to give back, which brought him to Northwood Tech. As an instructor for the Machine Tool Operation- CNC program, Richard's teaching philosophy is best described as “hands-on based learning with results-oriented evaluations.” He finds it very rewarding to help students get their career in manufacturing started. Hearing of students’ successes is the greatest reward. 

In his spare time, Richard races motorcycles with his two sons, Joshua and Mathew. He also enjoy building vintage race bikes, water skiing and fishing
