(Writer/Director/Producer) After reality slapped him in the face at the age of 18 (hey, every guy with an eyedropper full of talent thought he was going to be a rockstar, right?), a series of synchronistic events landed him his first job as a grip on a film crew. 2-years later, he parlayed his experience into becoming a producer and/or director and/or writer for commercials and corporate videos and later landed in Hollywood where he sold two scripts, optioned two more (none as yet have been produced). But Hollywood just wasn’t ready for Rick so he moved to San Diego where he moved up the ladder as a Senior Copywriter, Creative Director, Internet Creative Director and finally Marketing Director. Then four years ago, he fell into the magic kingdom of Nevada City, CA, and resumed his job as a Director of Marketing. He has also continued to write, winning Best of TV Pilots (LaCine Film Festival) and Quarterfinalist at Screencraft Pilot Launch, plus optioning another (still not currently picked up) TV Pilot.
