Richard operates a rural water consultancy and water brokering business, which he combines with a small berry farm from his property at Newlyn. He is an active member of his local Landcare group, as well as various other community organisations.
He has spent many years involved in natural resource management, predominantly in the water industry. From this springs his interest in the health of the rivers and waterways of the area, as well as the groundwater resources below us. As a part-time primary producer he is also passionate about sustainable agriculture and the vital role it plays in the economic life of central Victoria and Australia.
Richard is currently a member of the Goulburn Murray Water Loddon Campaspe Regional Water Service Committee and was previously a member of our Natural Resource Management Committee. He is also an executive member of the Australian Water Brokers Association.
