Richie and his family moved to Canada, precisely LaSalle, Ontario, where he attended the Sandwich Secondary High School. He also attended Windsor University, but dropped out of studies in order to pursue his career in music. Richie`s father is the person responsible for his success, as he introduced Richie to the work of techno pioneers such as Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream. Since then, Richie’s interest in music began slowly to add up, and by the time he left high school, he had already started to work as a DJ in Detroit clubs.

His professional career began in 1989, when he teamed up with Canadian DJ John Acquaviva, with whom he founded the record label entitled “Plus 8”. The next year, Richie released his first track under the stage name F.U.S.E, entitled “Approach And Indentify”, which was described as a pioneer of the IDM sub-genre. Richie’s first album, entitled “Dimension Intrusion”, was released in 1993 and it received positive reviews from critics, which encouraged Richie to continue with his career. Richie released his second album “Sheet One” the same year, this time under the name Plastikman. These were a strong start to his growing net worth.

Since then, Richie’s releases have become more and more popular, increasing his overall net worth. So far, Richie has released a total of 15 studio albums, mostly under his stage name Plastikman. Some of his most popular albums include “Closer” (2003), “Musik” (1994), “Consumed” (1998) and his latest release “EX” (2014). Additionally, Richie has released numerous mix compilations, all of which have benefited to his net worth. He released his first mix in 1995, as a live production entitled “Mixmag Live”. Richie went on to release eight more mix compilations, on which he collaborated with artists such as Sven Vath and Ricardo Villalobos.

Over the course of his career, Richie has been nominated for numerous prestigious awards, and has even managed to win a few, starting in 1999 when he was nominated for Best Inovator DJ award; in 2002 he received his first award for Best Techno DJ repeating this success twice more, in 2006 and 2008. Furthermore, Richie has earned a nomination for Best International DJ on three occasions, in 2010, 2013 and 2014.

Richie`s net worth also benefited from his record label, since popular artists such as Kenny Larkin and Speedy J, signed to his Plus 8 label.

Richie is also known throughout Europe, performing at techno events in Germany, Spain and England. Plus he has founded a record label in Germany, M_nus, which has also contributed to his net worth, as artists such as Gaiser, Hearttrob and Troy Pearce, among others, launched their respective careers through Minus record label.

Richie`s career in music peaked in July 2015, when he received an honorary doctorate of Music Technology from the University of Huddersfield, for his accomplishment in music.

Regarding his personal life, Richie has been dedicated to music ever since he first entered the scene, and so far it keeps him busy. His career has grown, and now, he is a headliner of every major dance event in the world. He currently resides in Berlin, his home since 2004.
