Rick was born in West Palm Beach, FL and grew up in the Florida Keys where his passion for sailing began. Growing up between The Bahamas and Florida Keys is what lead him on an inevitable path to the yachting industry.
After graduating from college with a Bachelors degree in Finance Rick spent a year working for his fathers export company. He felt that he didn't want to spend the prime years of his life glued to one place and job so he decided to make the transition to the yachting industry where he would be able to travel and make money at the same time.
Rick has been working on yachts for 5 years now as captain and first mate / engineer on larger superyachts. He's crossed the Atlantic and Pacific ocean and sailed almost everywhere inbetween. Spending time cruising the Out Islands of The Bahamas in his 33 CSY Rick has come to know all the best spots in the different island groups. He has a USCG 200 Ton Masters License along with many other maritime certifications.
His passions include photography, freediving, spearfishing, hiking, and all things adventure.
