After getting to know the fandom through Fibonacci and Wikifur Richard took the initiative to give the fandom a more organized thrust in Colombia, becoming the cofounder of Colombiafur. His work in the community usually involves communicating events or news to the community, and help integrate new members to the community and organizing the events. Alongside Fibonacci, he was also the cofounder of the Spanish version of Wikifur
Fibo, as his friends call him, discovered the furry fandom in 2003 and began organizing events since 2005, something that settled the bases to stablishing what would later become Colombiafur, him being the cofounder. Besides his activities in Colombiafur, Fibo was also the cofounder of Wikifur on its Spanish version.
