After growing up in an abusive home, Rick survived to thrive in a number of different areas as an adult. He is an award-winning radio broadcaster, who has also worked for professional sports teams, newspapers, and in television. He has sold paintings and photography as an artist; hiked mountains and done pilgrimages of long distances; and he has completed a marathon and four official half-marathons. He is determined to show that men can be athletic and strong without the toxic aspects of masculinity that scarred his childhood.
