Richard is also a freelancer within the local film and video industry.  He’s edited two independent feature films and been Director of Photography, Assistant Editor or Camera Operator on a few others.  Check out his IMDB page.  Richard says  “In television you have to think on your toes.  Things are always changing so it’s easy to stay busy.”

If I had the time?  I’d love to spend more time reading.  My work requires me to use my imagination when thinking up new promos and commercials and I’ve always found reading to be a great exercise for the mind.

My greatest TV moment was?   The first time I got to cast my nieces and nephews in a station image campaign.  They always knew that their uncle had a cool job, but seeing themselves on TV blew them away!

The most important thing that I’ve learned in my TV and film career is?   That you never know where the next cool story will come from. Keep your eyes open, or you might miss something!
