Richie was born and raised in a small ranching community in Eastern Oregon where he worked for an entrepreneur who was developing 600+ forest acres of land. There he helped build driveways, thin cut trees, build a natural spring well for the property, build a horse barn, and assisted with the construction of homes. Working on the property development and ranching, Richie learned how to work hard, and get things done. After taking an Intro AutoCAD class in high school, Richie knew this would be a great career. One where he could show his design skills. Joining the T-O team in November 2016, he has worked with the wastewater group creating the 3D models and laying out wastewater plants. In his spare time, Richie enjoys being outside shooting (hoops and guns), camping, hunting, and fishing.
