While his violin lessons at the age of five began as a hobby, Richard has since used his passion for sound and the aural arts to furnish a professional career in audio. Richard has worked as an audio designer and composer for films, commercials, video games, and apps. He specializes in sound design, interactive audio, and technology.
Richard has extensive audio post-production experience in Los Angeles, with credits on blockbuster films and games. Most recently Richard served as an audio designer on the Xbox 360/PS3 game Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse, and on the music preparation teams for feature films The Raven starring John Cusack and The Cold Light of Day starring Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver. Richard was also the sound designer for NY Times Bestselling author James Patterson's iPad book: SantaKid: A Holiday Adventure, and was formerly an Audio Supervisor for the popular online video game PlaneShift. Richard has also completed internships at Heavy Iron Studios, Music and Motion Productions, 740 Sound Design, and Audio Garden Entertainment.
Presently, Richard is completing his Bachelors of Music at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. He is pursuing dual major degrees in Electronic Production & Design and Film Scoring, with minors in Acoustics & Electronics, Audio Design for Video Games, and Video Game Scoring. At Berklee Richard serves as Co-President (with Richard Gould) of the school’s Sound Design Network, and was recently honored with the Wendy Carlos Sound Design Award.
In early 2012, Richard made his long-time dream of forming a sound and music post-production company a reality. Calling upon three of his talented friends and colleagues at Berklee, Richard proposed the idea of Hexany, and the company was born. Hexany was a natural outreach of the work Richard was involved in, and the support of additional team members meant the ability to take on larger, more ambitious projects. One year later, Hexany is thriving. With credits on numerous projects and big plans for 2013, it's an exciting time for all involved!
