There is a lot that gets Rich moving outside of work hours. He is passionate about leading a healthy lifestyle and finds time to weave in workouts with his wife and daughters (in between a full slate of dance recitals and swim meets). Rich spends his down time reading and dusting off his vast music collection, which includes more than a few heavy metal records from his days as a college radio DJ and Station Manager.
