About Richard

I'm a first time founder dedicated to building better virtual ecosystems and better businesses that leave each one of us substantially more well off than we were before. I'm particularly interested in fundamentally changing the way we interact with our online environments and for the past year or so I've been developing data monetization. I have an extremely strong background in B2B product management, some of my products have sold to Chevron and Shell, and all things technical.

I'm looking to collaborate with people from a wide and diverse set of backgrounds who are performance driven and possess foresight, self-control, integrity and most importantly a sense of humility. I possess the mindset that a position of strength comes from acknowledging your blind spots as few and far between that I have met care to do and you're always the smartest person in the room until you become the quintessential person that doesn't know what they don't know!

My project that I've been focused on as of late is deeply rooted in deconstructing and changing the way we think about advertising and marketing
