Richard has served nonprofits for many years in a variety of ways, including grant writing. He was a sportswriter for the Daily Pilot and OC Register for many years. Richard accepted the Lord Jesus in his heart through Baseball Chapel while playing professional baseball and ranks that as the best decision he ever made in his life. His second-best decision was marrying his wife, Andrea, of 24 years. Richard found NorthEast online and after learning more about the ministry, he fell in love with the mission and joined our team as a Grant Writer. He stands on Proverbs 15:15.
