Richard was born in the dust bowls of Norman, Oklahoma but has called Colorado home for the last 18 years. During this time he spent four years while on active-duty in the U.S. Army at the AFN studios in Seoul, Republic of Korea as a Broadcast Journalist, DJ and Public Affairs Specialist, where he re-acquainted himself with his love for writing, design, and creating in-general. At a crossroads between pursuing a career as a lobbyist or staying on the design path, he subsequently enrolled in a BA program at the Art Institute of Colorado for Web Design and Interactive Media, and never looked back.
Richard brings 10 years of digital marketing agency experience to Revenue River as a full-stack user experience and graphic designer producing original print, digital and interactive deliverables to improve creative quality, increase engagement, enhance usability, optimize online experiences and develop, upgrade and cultivate better brand profiles, and in his free time still enjoys writing and reading, time with friends on the trail or disc golf course, and making his mouthwatering green chili salsa.
“Richard is highly skilled with web and creative design. In a high paced, constantly changing environment, he was able to produce extensive amounts of creative (at one time) for high profile clients. He also aided in CRO (LP) testing by providing his expertise in web page development and design. Richard is a well driven and motivated teammate that was always up for creative development for everything from A/B testing, new emerging ad placements and more.” – Luccia Cafiero
“I had the pleasure of working with Richard for a little over a year at a digital marketing agency. During that time, Richard continuously produced good work, in a timely fashion.
Beyond that, Richard brought strong, fresh, new ideas to the team on a regular basis. His creative designs were beloved by our clients and typically always performed very well. It wasn’t just Richard’s technical skills that made him a pleasure to work with. He was also the first one to break down individual team silos and get the them to work cohesively, creating a better work environment and collaborative process.” – Tim Porosky
