Growing up in Vancouver, Canada, where DIY culture is a common leisure practice, Richard developed a passion towards tinkering in his free time. When he realised that there are no “design” tools or toolsets on the market, he went to work on making the ToolBook.
With a family business in manufacturing, Richard has knowledge of metal works and production. This experience allows him to lead a team of designers and engineers to overcome design and production challenges. This allows STRELKA to bring these allmetal screwdrivers, which are as good to look at as they are easy to use, to the market. As the general manager at STRELKA, he continues to strive for designs that fuse functionality with design style.
