Hey, I'm Richard!
New London, Connecticut, United States · Member since November 2011

For thirty-six years I have been an old world furniture maker (cabinetmaker) and mover and restorer of one dollar period houses. I am loving what I do but realize life is not long enough to allow me to do all that I want to do. Living on the shore of Long Island sound, I am a passionate sailor, owning a Herreshoff 12 1/2 and racing with anyone who I can hitch a ride (the other peoples' boat class). When not sailing, you will find me cruising on my Italian Moto Guzzi motorcycle or bicycling around Southeastern Connecticut and Rhode Island. Currently, I am restoring a pre-1750 house and orchestration the move and restoration of a 1829 Greek Revival. I am a person driven to make my mark on this earth. Winston Churchill said "Never, Never, Never give up; Teddy Roosevelt said get into the arena and give it your all. That is who I am. I have two wonderful grown children and have a wonderful woman as my partner. Life is a challenge but the glass is half full.
