Richard has been blessed to have been the Town Crier of his fair
city Washington USA for the last three years. In those three
years he has won Best American Crier at the 2008 North American
Town Crier Competition in Annapolis, Maryland, as well as a 1st
place and two 2nd place finishes and Best Overall Crier at this
year’s Bermuda 400th Anniversary Invitational International Town
At 6 foot 4 inches tall he is an imposing presence. He is
formerly a member of the National Shakespeare Company of New York
City, as well as having been a professional opera singer in Europe,
mostly in Zurich, Switzerland, and the U.S.
His demeanour and performance as Town Crier, therefore, is
wholly affected by his having been a professional stage performer
for over 20 years. He still performs today, but subject to the
demands of family life and that of teaching German and English in
the public school.
Richard has two beautifully tailored, faithfully period (18th
century) civilian Crier uniforms.
