Rich’s reputation for asking the bigger questions and empowering people to action has been evident not only in the professional arena, but also in his personal contributions to a number of faith-based organizations such as Reign Ministries where he served on the board and as the Executive Vice President for a number of years.
Rich is well-known as a passionate individual with strong ethical convictions. After he served in the US Army, Rich studied Exercise Science and Sports Medicine then worked with a hospital Sports Medicine department, and went on to build a career in real estate. His purposeful approach to team-building is intentional with industry leaders who are hungry, humble, dedicated, and smart. Blessed with keen intuition, a lifetime of sharp observations, and a drive to be an ever-learning based student in life, Rich takes a direct and whole-person approach to his coaching. Through mindful and perceptive listening, Rich is able to ask integral questions that unearth self discovery. His potent and integrated approach naturally ushers others to identify their unique blind-spots, make breakthroughs, and unlock potential. 
Rich’s core desire is to glorify God and help others to discover what it means to have a life by design and not by default. His altruistic contributions, distinguished career, and tightly held personal values, have earned Rich respect among industry leaders and granted him a reputation for having a direct, holistic, and results-oriented coaching approach.
