Dick started his career in banking and soon found out that desk work was not where he was called to be. This led him to a career in carpentry and wood working and eventually into building custom homes. He met Rex through the construction business and had many conversations about what could be done to resolve the growing crisis of homelessness. Dick is very pleased to now be working on that resolve through the Block Project. Besides woodworking projects, Dick enjoys spending time singing, writing songs and hanging out with family and friends, especially his two grandchildren.
