Toronto, ON

As Web Administration and Analytics Lead, Richard helps the Content and Communications team understand how effectively we are spreading the work that Jack.org young leaders are doing. By building data infrastructure and providing analysis, Richard ensures that we're making evidence-based decisions so our communications reach the people who need them at the moment they need them most.

Prior to joining Jack.org, Richard worked as a data scientist at RBC Ampli, a fintech startup, and the Torstar Corporation, the parent company of the Toronto Star and other local newspapers. Before moving to Toronto from Brooklyn in 2016, Richard worked in public education, real estate development, and asset management.

Outside of work, Richard is focusing his two of his passions - cooking and photography - toward his newest family member, making tasty and healthy meals and capturing the invaluable moments.

My mental health revolution is working toward equitable access to mental health care and supportive environments for everyone.
