About

Welcome, website visitors! By now you’ve learned how to spell my last name—an uncommon feat—but odds are you don’t know how to pronounce it. Worry not! Just remember you-really. Pick your favorite sentence with those two words (like this one or this one) and you’ll never forget it.

If we’re going to become acquainted, you should also know that everyone except my parents and grandmother* calls me Rich, and that I’m a marketer for a regional magazine publisher near New York.

My B.A. is in English from Rutgers University, and I worked as a copywriter after graduation, writing and blogging about Halloween costumes, accessories, and party supplies. Now I assist with all B2B and B2C marketing efforts, manage several local magazine websites, and help support a growing sales force. Read my résumé to learn more about what I do and what I’ve accomplished.

Talk to me for five minutes and you’ll learn that I’m obsessed with literature, language, and all things digital. I picked up Unix from my dad (a shell programmer) when I was a kid, taught myself HTML and CSS as a teen, and learned Java, Visual Basic, and network administration in college. I’ve read everything from Beowulf and hagiography in Old English to Vergil and Ovid in Latin, and I learned social media early on when I joined an online community of baseball fans—one in which I’m still active.

While you’re here, check out my portfolio. It’s filled with things I’ve written for work, school, and fun, so you don’t have to rely on this bio alone to see what I can do.
