Richard has not had a mundane life. His first out of body experience was in about 1967 at the age of four and has had numerous visions of Saints and what some would term God(s). After having experienced Samadhi (being one with God) on two different occasions his life changed forever. A group of military and non-earthly entities started training him for an upcoming event which has not been specified. The training seems to have ceased but visitations by non-human entities still happens on occasion.
Richard was Army National Guard for a brief period and then went active Duty Air Force for 10 years, completing his requirements for a degree in avionics technologies. He currently works as an electronics technician for a major telecommunications company.
