The first thing that drew me to Richard was his passion, then his eyes that make the Grand Canyon a boring hole in the ground. I was watching some show on Animal Planet I came to after my channel flipping was stopped by spotting a commercial I animated. There he was. Talking about frozen zoos. He collects and freezes embryos of animal species facing extinction. He also is part of a project to recreate DNA of already extinct species then using a similar species as a host. Very Jurassic Park. I knew right away we were destined to be together.
