Richard Sterman
I was born in The Bronx, grew up in Miami, lived in Los Angeles and currently reside in Agoura Hills, CA with my wife of over 37 years. I never went to college but graduated from the “School of Hard Knocks” Valedictorian. Most of my professional career has been as a General Contractor. I call ’em as I see ’em, which sometimes gets me in trouble but at least you’ll always know where I stand. I’m at that stage in life where I’m past the 50 yard line but the end zone is still far enough away to keep it interesting.
