Rich graduated from King’s College with a degree in Psychology. He briefly pursued a job in marketing due to his connections and experience in the music industry. Returning to his original desire to make a difference, he worked as a therapist for seven years in children’s mental and behavioral health, initially concentrating on pre-teen behavioral clients and later transitioning to early development within the Autism spectrum. Rich served four years as program director for a therapeutic summer camp.
Needing a change for himself, he began studying with The Tad James Co., and received certifications in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line Therapy®, and Hypnotherapy. He started his business focusing on self-empowerment, personal and professional development, and leadership and team training.
He was invited by both Jim Britt and Jim Lutes to be a co-author in the international book series, The Change – Insights into Self-Empowerment, the fastest growing book series in the world focusing on self-empowerment, personal development, and life transformation. His chapter, “Transform Pebbles Into Mountains” is featured in book five. Rich is the co-host of The Change Book Radio Show, a weekly podcast, alongside fellow co-author Larunce Pipkin.
In September 2015 Rich and Larunce decided to join forces and launch Vortex Mastermind, LLC., and their Bankrolling Your Mind brand for programs and seminars. Their book, Bankrolling Your Mind, will be published late summer 2016.
In addition to coaching, Rich is a musician and co-owner of Sector One Entertainment, a company whose goal is to bring music, art, and culture to the forefront of the community. The company hosts regular events in Northeastern Pennsylvania and organizes the largest independently produced music festival in the region. Over the years they have donated more than $15,000 to local and national charities.
Rich is an Eagle Scout, a Vigil Honor Member, and believes in serving others within his community.
His personal motto is simple: Lead By Example Through Excellence.
