Having graduated from Sydney University with Honours in English, Richie has spent the intervening years writing, working and travelling. As a writer he earned a living writing for publications such as the Sydney Morning Herald, Limelight Magazine and everyone’s favourite truck-stop mag The Picture, while working extensively in advertising.
By night, he purged his soul with (genuinely) creative writing, particularly for the theatre. Recent writing credits include The Local (Sydney Fringe Festival), Aunt Agony (New Theatre) as well as the sketch comedy The Cardboard Cartel (Arts Platform) in which he also performed. As an actor, he has appeared in productions such as Blood Brothers (Zenith Theatre) and Badjelly The Witch (New Theatre) – and innumerable SUDS (Sydney University Dramatic Society) productions, where he got his introduction to the lure of the footlights (and, by extension, theatre).
A humorist who relishes the absurdity of the human condition, Richie is now committed to the destruction of capitalist market forces rather than enabling them through ad copywriting. Unless someone pays him a lot of money.
