Born in Toronto, Richard doodled his way through Europe living in Austria, Germany, and Italian Switzerland, before moving back to Toronto by the age of ten.
He realized his career path would be in art through the inspiration of his art teacher, and Canadian artist Richard Hayman at Lakefield College School.
Studying art at North Toronto
Collegiate Institute he
completed his last year of
high school at Lycee Canadien
en France near Nice, France.
Soon thereafter he completed his Bachelor
degree in Visual Arts at
The University of Western Ontario.
In 1997 Richard studied two years of classical and computer animation at Vanarts and has worked professionally in almost all stages of production since then. From final line animator for Dreamworks projects to computer animator for Ubisoft titles, he also worked as a concept artist, storyboard artist, and modeler along the way. After 7 years Relic Entertainment, Richard has worked at Electronic Arts, Yager Development, and currently at Ubisoft (Annecy) continuing to broaden his animation skills toward higher levels.
