Born in Oak Bluffs, Richard has always called Martha's Vineyard home. He went through the school system here, worked through his first career with Eversource Electric for 35 years here, and raised his family here on the Vineyard.
Richard has always been very civic and community minded and involved. He has served on the Martha's Vineyard Commission, and was elected to the Board of Selectman in Oak Bluffs for a number of years.
Richard's family has also been in the ice cream business now for two generations in Oak Bluffs, as owners and operators of the popular Carousel Ice Cream Factory on Circuit Avenue.
Turning his energies now to real estate, Richard says his greatest joy is helping other people find their special place on the Vineyard.
When he's not busy with real estate, Richard can be found shellfishing or at Farm Neck Golf Club. He and his wife live in Oak Bluffs, as does one of his grown kids and their family.
