Richard is a freelance correspondent based in Miami, Florida. Clients include a variety of international media outlets, including The Guardian.

Richard was a staff member on the London Daily Telegraph for 10 years, before moving to the United States in 2002. 

He has covered many major news and sports events from the US, Caribbean and South and Central America, including the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, the US space program's trials and tribulations since the retirement of the space shuttle and, more recently, the long-running saga of David Beckham's attempts to launch a Major League Soccer franchise in Miami.

Other stories of international interest have included the death of Anna Nicole Smith, the Bob Woolmer ‘murder’ case in Jamaica, the mystery of missing British canoe man John Darwin and an investigation from inside the Arctic Circle into Alaska’s disappearing polar bears.

In 2013 he covered the much-watched trial in Sanford, Florida, of George Zimmerman, the neighbourhood watch leader whose killing of an unarmed black teenager sparked national debates over race, civil rights and gun laws.
