About Joseph Richman

Hailing from New York, Joseph Richman is extremely excited to be spending his junior year in London. A junior in the college, he knows that a year at the LSE will be a fulfilling experience replete with football matches, concerts, and excursions throughout the British Isles. Joe cannot wait to hear the crowd at his first football match. An avid fan of the New York Yankees, Giants, Rangers, and Knicks, he wants to know what the true religion of football is like in England. Additionally, his lifelong love of British music from the Beatles to the Arctic Monkeys will surely have him navigating the grungy rock clubs all around London town. While he remains a bit sad about giving up an entire year at Georgetown, he has never been more excited about any opportunity in his life than being able to live and study in London.
