Rich is a graphic / web designer and musician. He began playing guitar, bass and drums at an early age, and also playing around a lot with Letraset and glue. After a succession of bands that ranged from hardcore punk to jazz fusion, he formed Trip, who went on to be signed by MCA Records and were featured in the Oscar-winning Terry Gilliam movie ‘The Fisher King’. Rich wrote the music for The Occasion’s production of ‘The Monster & Mary Shelley’, and has written all the music for The Occasion’s productions since.
Rich has designed websites and printed material for a whole range of people and organisations, these include The National Youth Dance Company of Scotland, University of Winchester, Blue Apple Theatre, Hampshire County Council, Ayuntamiento de Salobreña (Spain), The Hungry Cat (Berlin), Winchester Film Festival, Skye Loneragan, Peter Bruntnell and many others. Rich does all of The Occasion’s print and web design.
Alongside the design and the music, Rich has also set up a small podcast network and has recently been editing a lot of video… mainly for The Occasion.
