Dick grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and graduated from Northern Arizona University with a BS degree in Business.  After graduation Dick moved to California as a Sales Representative in the Beverly Hills IBM location.  Dick’s career covered many different aspects of business.  Sales Management, Marketing Management, Insurance Industry Management, Product Development Management.  As Corporate Staff positions became available, Dick and his family moved several times around the country.  1980 brought them to Austin to run IBM World Wide Customer Satisfaction Team for Austin’s product offerings.

Dick joined Grace Covenant Church in 1980 where he served in several different roles.  Deacon, Elder and key person in the development of Mission Possible, which will celebrate 30 years of ministry this November.  Mission Possible serves inner city families with a wide variety of services, including Church under the Bridge. From years of working with our city’s leaders and organizations that serve the community, Dick was drawn to PlanCTX. He feels that his experiences will assist us in reaching like-minded organizations to partner with our services.

Obviously, the mental stability of “the under resourced” in Austin is critical to our city’s future, and, requires our professional assistance whenever possible.  Dick looks forward to networking with others to overcome these pivotal issues.
