Richard was a lifelong inventor and entrepreneur, and brought over half a dozen companies from the development stage to exit. Having started his entrepreneurial life early on while in high school, he started his first cash register business with only $16,000 which he managed to successfully sell 3 years later for $1.2 million. From there he founded CashGraph Software Company, a small business accounting and management software company which grew its sales to over $34 million. In 2000, he sold 50% of the company to The Equitable Securities Group and founded Clear Path which he then sold two years later to the Tyco Corporation. In 2004, he started Dickens Energy Cider and Turn Left Energy Drink Company. In 2006, he merged with a nutritional supplement company to create DC Brands International, Inc. a beverage company that manufactured vitaminfortified water that combines in one container flavored water and vitamins stored in the patented flip-top compartment of the cap. He sold his interest in the business in June 2012 for $15.6 million. He went on to create the FROG Fitness, a pro training system, which has been used by pro football teams, professional baseball, soccer, motocross, all four branches of the armed service, and many more prestigious industries. In 2016 after the unfortunate death of his friend’s son from a distracted driving incident, Richard was determined to put an end to such tragic events from ever happening again, and the inspiration for the Stealth Fighter was born.
