is his real name.
Rich’s background is as diverse as is his work. He is passionate about his photography and while New York City is a constant inspiration and source of all things unexpected, cars (pre-1970) and their unique design details comprise a huge portion of what he shoots. Rich’s photos comprise artwork in many client sites and the mindset behind the lens is “I see it…I like it…I shoot it”.
He is a former fitness professional, most notably at Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires, as well as a robust clientele throughout Manhattan and the Hamptons. Certifications included American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the American Council on Exercise (ACE), International Dance Exercise Association (IDEA).
Rich has been fortunate enough to share his quirky and insightful observations throughout the Manhattan comedy circuit, including Caroline’s, Stand Up New York and New York Comedy Club.
He served on the staff at Fordham University as an adjunct professor and has worked as a creative consultant for Saatchi & Saatchi, McCann Erikson and Pace Advertising.
With a story conceived from years of business networking, Rich co-wrote and co-produced a romantic comedy feature film called The Networker. The Networker premiered May 17, 2015, for sold-out screenings at the Soho International Film Festival and was released into distribution in September of 2017, available, among other places, on Amazon Prime, the iTunes Store & Google Play.
Said Rich of that effort, “I produced a movie into distribution. I know how to get shit done!”.
