WHO IS HE?
Rich grew up in Northern Wisconsin. He has MCS (Middle Child Syndrome) but is definitely his Mom's favorite. He worked very hard at not being noticed in school but always wanted to be on camera. Rich wanted to be a Talk Show Host since he was12. It was first seeing Rosie O'Donnell's show in 1997 that sparked this love and he hasn't stopped since. He attended UW-Milwaukee for college, which took him 5 years to get a Theatre Degree because he was busy ....socializing. Not knowing how to become a Host after college, Rich started hosting live trivia games in bars and restaurants around Milwaukee.
Then it happened.....he was asked to host his own show on Milwaukee Public Television in 2011. That show won an award!
Rich met his husband in 2012, got married in 2014 in Hawaii (GO THERE NOW) and divorced in 2018. Some good things did happen in there, though. 2015 took them to Maryland, where he started a fashion truck business AND TRWS began on August 29th, 2016. A move to Texas in September, 2017 is when TRWS began filming Season 2 in December from a home studio.
Rich began working with the arts-in-health nonprofit, Hearts Need Art: Creative Support for Patients and Caregivers. He works with adult patients, their loved ones and medical staff to bring moments of joy, creativity and self-expression through art, music and writing programs.
