Richard is a technologist / satirist / skeptic hybrid species (genus : teknosatirskeptis). He has spent most of his life in New York City, aside from his undergrad stay at Syracuse University where he earned a degree in English while narrowly escaping hypothermia. He preaches quality by day at R/GA while curating SPLIT Quarterly and various side endeavors whenever he gets a chance. He currently resides in Manhattan’s Upper West Side with his wife and son in an overpriced, undersized apartment full of gadgets named after notable writers. He enjoys chrysanthemum tea, 70% cacao, cookies and avoids celery at all costs.
