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 personal trainer, most notably at Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires, 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 by Rich, Victor Ribaudo and Bill Brady and a great script written by Victor, they produced a romantic comedy feature film called The Networker. The Networker premiered May 17, 2015, for two 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.
