Richie has always had an appreciation of music and technology. He spent a good proportion of his early career as a nightclub DJ, radio presenter & a much sought after live event presenter across the UK. He has project managed countless prestigious events from National sports cup matches, employee reward (Oscars) nights for National companies and celebration party events for a host of celebrities.
Over a 10 year period, he gave his time freely for 3 months a year helping with the charity ‘Dreamflight’, as a cameraman and video editor. In addition to filming two groups of 16 terminally or seriously ill children and their support teams, he produced two 90-minute feature films, documenting their transformational 10 day holiday in Florida for their families (who didn’t go with them) to watch at cinema previews and to have as a keepsake.
He loves helping to achieve happiness and for the past 7 years has been part of the multi-award winning Ealing Half Marathon team, working as their event compere. He is also the lead compere for all British Heart Foundation fundraising events around the UK, a charity he has worked with for over 20 years.
He was an avid fan of Ice Hockey and was the announcer on match nights, even fulfilling one of his goals of being a presenter on ITV when covering Ice Hockey matches.
He is a recipient of numerous industry awards for presenting, DJing and compering and can be seen occasionally getting back in the saddle for private friends & family occasions and even on the retreats!!
In the early clinical days of Life Right, his focus was logistics, computer interface, audio downloads and website creation. Inspired by the stories of people’s courage and will to improve their health status, he retrained as a Music Therapist at Roehampton University and then went on to master his skills in clinical reflexology, Indian Head Massage, sports massage and aroma-hypnotherapy.
He is a valuable part of the Team and manages logistics, appointments and ultimate experience, whether that is on a residential retreat or in one of our consulting hubs. He is also one of the holistic practitioners who can provide massage and audio interventions and treatments on our retreats.
in 2020, Richie used his 10+ years of skills and experience to set up an entire radio station and bring it to air. The popularity for Life Right Radio has grown way beyond expectations and achieves better listener hours (length of time listening) than many commercial radio stations!
Richie is a keen Formula 1 fan and has previously performed as the front man with Marillion & Pink Floyd tribute bands. In his spare time, he loves being out on the sea on his jetski, plus he can sometimes be heard playing piano, drums and guitar, although rarely at the same time!
