Richard was born in Masterton and raised on an asparagus farm in the Horowhenua. After becoming sick of asparagus Richard headed to Vet School and graduated in 2001. Richard cut his teeth in Oamaru, working as a mixed vet, with a large herd dairy focus. After veterinary jobs in Levin, Masterton, and Manchester, Richard settled down in the Wairarapa. Richard convinced a local girl to marry him, and now has a young son Sam. Richard enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine but particularly leaning on a fencepost talking shit with farmers.
