My name is Richard and I'm a pretty easy going guy. My friends describe me as being a positve person with a sense of humor, a big heart and friendly nature. I also tend to be a pretty honest guy and expect others to also be honest, prefering to see the good in others until proven otherwise. I have a masters in anthropology and I'm lucky enough to have had a career as an archaeologist which I loved. I worked on several projects thoughout Virginia doing archaeological surveys and excavations. I just recently started a new career as a Joint Use Developer for Dominion and it has been pretty awesome so far. There seems to be a lot of opportunity for growth and I get to continue traveling around the state though now I'm more in control of my schedule. I love to travel, both abroad and in the U.S. (Just got back from a vacation to Australia!), visiting historical places and exploring areas or towns. I've also picked up hobbies such as scuba diving, archery, chess, writing, going to museums and cooking. Now in a sense of full disclosure I will warn you that I have a few bad habits as well such as cooking you meals (i'm a decent cook and like the feed back), I subconciously dancing or singing to music (sometimes both and usually I won't know the words), and making a bit of a goof of myself to lighten the mood and see you smile. So be warned, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
