Born and raised on a hobby farm in the Adelaide Hills, Richard was banned from watching TV during the week as a child (unless it was ABC News or 7.30 Report) so he read a lot of books.
After completing a finance degree he moved to Sydney to be a ‘guide dog with a Blackberry’. "What I mean by that is that I worked as a personal assistant for someone who was blind, meaning that I went everywhere with them. It was a lot of travel and a pretty crazy experience."
Having travelled the world Richard now plans to conquer the Big Brother House. “I’m always up for an adventure. I enjoy resolving disputes and connecting with new people, and seem to make new friends easily.”
"I tend to nose-pick occasionally. I’m a terrible cook and can be very lazy. I also hate when others complain about little things. I hate the unnecessary drama, absolutely hate it."
