Rich is a native North Carolinian whose first career was teaching high school science in Baton Rouge through Teach for America. During the last decade, Rich has worked as an IT Project Manager for several employers including Multnomah County's IT team where he led technology implementations that served both internal customers in the Health, Human Services, and Community Justice departments and community stakeholders in the Portland, OR area.
