We had the good fortune of connecting with Vincent Richmond and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Vincent, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
Some of the habits I always try to implement in myself are health practices, mental sharpening and relaxation. My practices for my health are keeping up on my meditation and fitness while also staying on point inside and out. That goes along with making sure I take my daily vitamins and supplements and keeping my skin healthy too weekly mask treatments and my daily skin, beard, and hair routines. My fitness and meditation go hand-in-hand with heavy weight lifting, kettlebell work, and bringing in yoga to stretch my muscles and work the other little aspects. These are all crucial because it you look good, you feel good and vice versa. My mental sharpening consists of reading, whether it’s plays and other scripts or my favorite non-fiction and self-help books. I even make sure I stay on my craft by doing character work with monologues and sonnets to flesh them out. One particular task I feel helps me alot too is multi-tasking (believe it or not). I feel relaxation is my most crucial habit because I always want to make sure I don’t get burnt out or over worked.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am an actor and model with more a specialty in theatre. I started my career journey in college when I studied Theatre Arts at California State University Dominguez Hills (Class of 2017). The road was and definitely is still not the easiest but it’s well worth it because of all the networking, experiences, and work I’ve been able to get done. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is to have faith in yourself because there’s always going to be setbacks but trust in your abilities to overcome and succeed.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
There’s quite a few spots around San Diego but my absolute favorite is definitely Seaport Village. It’s such a fun area to roam with so many shops around and a beautiful view of the ocean and downtown.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to shout out to my friends and family of course that do provide support especially because they are aware of the struggles that I go through and even some of them in the same field as artists and in the entertainment go through
