On working at Next Street

I am happy to work within a company that understands the struggle that institutional racism has placed within NYC.

Outside of Next Street

When he’s not at work, Richard can be found at kickboxing class, at the gym, or dancing the night away with tambores in the background. Richard tries to learn something new every year – this year he’ll learn to ride, repair, and maintain a motorcycle.
