Richard is an avid snow skier, fisherman and scuba diver and keeps his family and friends well stocked with crayfish and other fresh seafood. He is a keen photographer, enjoys running, cycling, reading, driving and of course, listening to music.
He is passionate about electronic equipment and you can rest assured that all of his sound gear is the very best that sensible money can buy! 18 months employed in a top-end HiFi retail boutique has meant that Richard has an extremely critical ear for quality sound.
Richard is an enthusiastic committee member of the Wellington Audio Association, administrator of the Wedding Professionals of New Zealand Facebook Network and committee advisory member to the UK Wedding DJ Association.
You can often see him at functions stepping out into the crowd to listen to the sound and adjusting it achieve the best possible fidelity.

He is also one of only three New Zealand graduates of the Marbecca Method Advanced Master of Ceremonies Workshop.
Richard is also the Managing Director of ShowPro Ltd, an Audio & Visual Sales & Rental company, including event planning and conference organising. With nearly quarter of a century in the entertainment business, Richard’s extensive list of contacts in the industry and in-depth knowledge of creating successful events make him the ideal fit for helping to create unforgettable events.
