To say that Richard has a passion for hospitality would be an understatement. Growing up in Pasadena, CA, Richard learned at an early age to recognize to live life to the fullest it is necessary to understand how fortunate we are by serving others through volunteering and service to the community in which you live and work.

This passion would be fulfilled in his service in Youth Ministry, spending many weekends serving alongside his parents as a Food Bank volunteer and event tutoring younger students at the church’s after-school tutoring program.

Growing up did not alter his passion for community service as he continues as a volunteer member of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses, avid volunteer for Walk for MS, and being on the board of the Arthritis Foundation's Jingle Bell Run in Fargo.

His worldly ambitions included working in the banking industry in areas such as high-level external customer resolutions and detect and resolve high magnitude process defects and systems re-engineering to ensure maximum performance within the organizations he served. He transferred these skill sets to become a “force to be reckoned with” in the Electronics sales industry as well.

He formerly served as Restaurant Manager for Mezzaluna, where Richard's gift of hospitality and his passion for serving has led to training his staff of 17 in providing the most exceptional dining experience in all of Fargo!

An experience so exceptional that Mezzaluna landed on the pages of Travel & Leisure Magazine, in addition to Best Restaurant accolades in the Fargo Forum, High Plains Reader, and Business Insider.

A genuine relationship builder, a passion for serving and a vision for leading are the essential components to helping you create the event that like a beautiful symphony which lasts in hearts and minds long after the concert has ended.

Allow Richard and his SEC team to present you and your guest not just an event but, an event to be cherished and remembered forever. We are at your service; we are SEC.
