Born in Chicago and raised in North Carolina, Ricky's heroes growing up were the poets, adventurers, and players. After a career on the gridiron while studying public policy, film/theater, and religion at Duke University, Ricky moved to Los Angeles, CA to pursue his passion for acting, filmmaking, and music. He's since trained at Upright Citizen's Brigade, Stan Kirsch Studios, and the Judith Weston Studio For Actors and Directors. Ricky has appeared in TV, film, commercials, and web content. He speaks fluent English and Spanish, is an avid amateur-chef, vinyl enthusiast, and a proud member of the CubaOne Foundation alumni committee.
