Rick has been involved with media since he was in 9th grade. Then, he began working in radio and learning everything there was to know about radio broadcasting. He worked on-air, in production, went on sales calls, and even got his hands dirty with engineering.
After 10 years in radio, Rick went into TV for 10 years working in Production, Marketing, and Online. Receiving a Southeast Regional Emmy for his work on "Unexplained: Haunts" is a cherished highlight.
Since 2008, Rick's focus has been in program management at AOL. His work with AOL Tech's channels of Engadget, TUAW, Joystiq, Massively, and WoW Insider provides new projects daily and the occasional opportunity to flex is code monkey skills.
