Rich Jones is a professional philanthropist, born and raised in Montreal, QC, Canada, by way of Africville/Halifax, Nova Scotia. As a 7th generation Black Canadian, Rich has developed a profound respect for his African+American roots, which has driven his natural love for Black History+Diaspora from a very young age. At age 7, he read 'The Autobiography of Malcolm X: As Told by Alex Haley' and lists James Baldwin+Nikki Giovanni as two of his literary heroes.
Professionally, his career experience has granted him opportunities with the likes of RBC, Air Canada and Sun Life Financial, respectfully. After almost a decade in the corporate world, Rich decided it was time to change his career and entered the non-profit sector, helping with Cancer Research awareness.
He enjoys giving back to his community: this includes his years as a lead Integration Aid/Homework Assistant for the Lester B. Pearson School Board (LBPSB), volunteering at the YMCA and West Island Community Shares. His time at the LBPSB helped shape the lives of the youth he worked with (aged 5-12) for the better and his relatability with them led to many breakthroughs for the children and himself personally.
Academically, his Political Science background from Concordia University (BA Major) has solidified his lifelong interest/understanding of world politics. He also spent over 4 years working in sports radio at the Montreal Team 690 (currently Team 690) behind the scenes as a research lead for the early morning/late night shows.
Rich’s musical influences include (and are not limited to): Prince, Kendrick Lamar, Sade, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, Frank Ocean, Anderson .Paak, Nina Simone, Daniel Caesar, Anita Baker, Gil-Scott-Heron, Solange, OutKast, Chaka Khan, Mac Miller, J. Dilla, Isaiah Rashad, Kaytranada & The Internet.
To his friends, family & acquaintances, Rich is known as a very cool, versatile and reliable person, whose passion for music and the arts is endless. He's currently curating his musical chops to soon deliver a mind-blowing experience unlike anything you’ve ever heard before ;)
