Background

About Richard

I have always been filled with ideas deriving from my passion for solving problems. I fully embrace the fact that I am different from most people in that I follow my own path and do not rely on trends. One may consider me as bold and foolish, but I am better off exploring the possibilities in life rather than wonder what I would be doing instead of sitting in a cubicle.

I would be thrilled to find a couple of business partners who are as intrepid and adventurous as I am. I am seeking a software engineer, a business developer, and someone with a solid network within the music industry.
