About Richard

I help nonprofits raise more money so they can make the world a better place. I also help nonprofit boards understand their roles better. Find me at or

In the first two+ decades of my career, I was lucky enough to help shape the work at the Walton Arts Center, Arizona State University, and Catholic Healthcare West (now Dignity Health). Since 2010, I have consulted with dozens of nonprofits around the country as they strive to solve the world’s problems. We’re not quite done. I’ve learned as much from my clients as they have from me.

My job as a consultant is to understand your organization, learn your language, and help make sense of things. My clients have been diverse: healthcare, children’s museums, insurance companies, retirement communities, symphonies, youth organizations, food banks, etc. My nonprofit passions include organizations that give a voice and access to those who don’t have it. My love language is in the arts, music, and healthcare. Or just really cool projects.

I volunteer on the board of the Arizona Academy of the Performing Arts.

Things I do really well:
Board Training and Facilitation | Strategic Planning | Feasibility Studies | Capital Campaign Management
