A native of Michigan, he moved to Elmirain 1986, where he worked in the marketing department of Hardinge Inc. for 18 years. He started LaVere Media in 2004; the company was received the Chemung County Chamber of Commerce "New Business of the Year" Award in 2009. As a documentary producer, he recently completed his second local work, "Facing The Wall". He is also the New York correspondent for PAN Magazine, a cultural biannual based in Australia, a member of the Elmira Kiwanis Club, a member of First Presbyterian Church in Elmira where he sings with the choir, and an active participant in various Chamber committees.Rich is the father of three, husband of one, and coexists with a dog, cat, bird, and other small creatures that live in his children's rooms. In his spare time, he can be found drinking coffee and muttering something about not getting enough sleep.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
