“My mission is to make the world a more peaceful place by spreading my Gold with listening, hearing and patience.”

Richard’s impact in the entrepreneurship community all over Upstate New York (Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse) is legendary.  And most recently he has been passionately working on Ending Racism. Richard is active in the Exploring Racism Group body of work, which are learning circles made up of business and organizational leaders who are learning about the impact of Systemic Racism, and committed to ending it in our organizations and businesses.  Probably his biggest impact of all, is that he was the person who convinced the County Legislature and County Managers to rename the Rochester airport after Frederick Douglass. Richard has personally caused the creation and growth of many businesses and led the Ending Racism charge here in Rochester.
