Just as his father taught him, he enjoys instilling the importance of honesty, integrity, and strength in them. An avid New York Yankees fan, Richard likes spending some of his free time going to the ballpark and exploring the great city of New York.

He is also a lover of travel, believing in the importance and necessity of getting away from one’s hometown, stretching one’s mind, and learning about new people, places, and ways of thinking.
