After several years of distinguished service maintaining the nuclear weapon systems aboard a US Navy Submarine, Rich has settled in Keller, Texas with a really hot girl, Carrie. While serving in the Navy, Rich achieved great athletic success. Competing in the Decathlon at the 1984 Boston College Relays, he finished ninth out of ten competitors after failing to clear the opening height in the high jump. Undeterred, he then entered the pole vault and nabbed eighteenth place in that event. With nothing else to prove he immediately retired from college sports.
Twenty years after failing high school algebra, he earned a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Texas. Rich works as an engineering manager at Nokia Mobile Phones, which for many years has helped him live his dream of seeing the world. In 2007, he scaled back his business travel and created a program within Nokia which has, to date, provided technical jobs for over forty ambitious college students. He's helping his oldest daughter, Lindsay, through college and teaching his younger daughter, Leanna, how to pole vault and solve math problems.
Rich is on Facebook and Twitter, and has the website, www.onewaytickettoanywhere.com.
