Rich is a North Carolina transplant from Randolph, NJ, who moved south to attend college. It was at UNCG that he met his wife, Katina, who is a “North Carolina Girl” born and raised. Family is extremely important to them, which is why after a brief period of medical school in Atlanta, GA, they returned home to North Carolina. Having always loved the beach, Rich and Katina moved their family here to Morehead City in 2010, and they love it here. They have three daughters and several pets.
Rich’s personal interests include: growing in his faith, spending time with family, playing guitar, travel, diving, and fishing.
