Richard is a Helena native, Capital High School and Carroll College graduate. When he isn’t advocating for his community, he loves exploring Montana’s wild places and is a passionate proponent of enjoying our public lands.
Unbeknownst to him, Richard has been an early childhood advocate his whole life. Richard’s mother was an in-home child care provider from the time he was born, so he experienced first-hand the struggles faced by both child care providers and the families that depend on them. Now that he is working with Zero to Five Montana, he is ready to help improve a system that made such an impact on his life.
