Ever since his early days, Richard learned many sports. But even though these sports would eat up a lot of energy, something was missing so that he could feel fully accomplished, something artistic. So, in his free time he started to draw. This lasted for a while, but something was still missing.
At the age of 19, he started to get involve in the world of dance. But that still wasn't enough, it was missing something that would give him an adrenaline rush like no other before. That's when the circus came to him from nowhere. Finally he had found his destiny and could now enter his childhood dream.
At that time, he started his trainig at L'École de Cirque de Québec for 4 years where he learned to be a good aerial accrobat performer. He alson learned the basic skills of a circus performer (floor acrobatics, trampoline, dance, theatrical play, etc)
In his final year, he had the audacity to create his own aerial apparel, the aerial-ladder. Since then he had the oppoturnity to perform his aerial-ladder routine with the Cirque du Soleil. He also performed on the television show " La vie est un cirque" and was part of "Le Cirque Starlight Production" who performed all around Switzerland. He finally presented his numbers (tissues-aerials and aerial-ladder) in many corporative events throughout the Province of Quebec and in Europe.
