About me…

Name:  Daniel J Richardson

Hometown:  Richmond, VA

School:  Defense Information School Ft. Meade, MD.  & Virginia Commonwealth University

Occupation:  USMC, Capital One

Interests:  Photography, Jeeps, Motorcycles, Pitbulls, Firearms, Outdoors, Technology, Snowboarding, Music etc.

Background:  I grew up in Richmond, VA and attended Douglas Southall Freeman High School.  My photography teacher, Mr. Gilmore was a major inspiration to me so after high school graduation, I enlisted as a Combat Correspondent/Public Affairs Officer, and photojournalist in United States Marine Corps.  I went to school in M.D. for a little over a year and was stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, S.C.  My primary role was a photojournalist and editor of our base paper, The Jet Stream.  Four years later, I returned to Richmond and started a small construction business and a night club security team.  I was recently involved in two serious motorcycle accidents and fell extremely lucky and grateful to be alive.  Everyday is a Blessing!  I currently work at Capital One full-time and attend VCU in the evenings.  I am passionate about everything I do and feel this blogging project has really helped me to realize that it’s ok to publish your ideas  even if you haven’t had time to edit and re-edit.  Project 54 helped me rediscover my self-confidence needed to express myself to others in a way that I didn’t even know existed.  So here’s to blogging, it turns out blogging is not just for nerds!
