Born in Nairobi, Kenya, Richard studied English Literature at university before going on to work and travel in Europe and Australia. At the start of the new millennium he settled in Shanghai and spent the following years working as a freelance photographer and writer, exploring the country and its neighbours, before joining BISS Puxi in 2005.
Richard joined BISS Puxi as an EAL and media teacher and then moved into the role of Publications and Communications Officer. In this role he is able to combine his passion for photography and design with education.
Richard lives in the suburbs of Shanghai with his wife and three children. He still finds time to take photographs and to discover China with his family.
