Rich is a man who loves to write. He is the author of three books and the “Rich Like Me” political column at Washington Times Communities. He has taught at all levels, and continues to teach at the university level while enrolled in a doctoral program.
Weird, because he is also a Soldier in the California National Guard. Two years ago his unit, the 69th Public Affairs Detachment, deployed to Kosovo, where he served as the Video Section Leader for Multi-National Task Force East, under NATO command. While there he wrote for the magazine, Guardian East. He also finished his first book, Nine Weeks, about his unique experience at Army basic training, and joined the ranks of military bloggers with “My Public Affairs.”
Rich holds a masters degree in Mathematics Education from Western Governors University. Before that he roused rabble at CSU East Bay (previously “Hayward”). At CSUEB he founded a student newspaper, The California Statesman. While in school, he met his wife, Esther, at a political forum.
In between teaching assignments and his National Guard commitments, Rich works on his upcoming books. You can read about them by going to the “Books” menu above.
He resides in Salt Lake City with Esther and their two young sons.
