Western New York and Northwest Pennsylvania Chapter President
Richard joined the Fulbright Association in 2016.
When and where did your Fulbright take place? What did you do during your grant year?
I completed three Fulbrights: one Specialist in Estonia in 2014, a Specialist in Malaysia in 2016, and a Scholar in Malaysia in 2020. I taught undergraduate and graduate course in business system and structure for tech and media students and offered seminars in international marketing and distribution. I also mentored local tech startups.

I am involved with the Fulbright as Chapter President for Western New York & Northeastern Pennsylvania. I feel it is important that we interact in a meaningful way with individuals from different countries and cultures, and I’m currently involved in a worldwide study on creativity.
