It's difficult to know which is a deeper passion for Rick: audio engineering or real estate. Seeing as he started careers in both industries before he was 21, to say he's experienced is, well... understated to say the least. Whether touring on the road, or mixing in the recording studio, Rick was equally at home.
He has a Master of Science Degree in Telecommunications Engineering Technology, developed and taught audio engineering courses at Rochester Institute of Technology, and holds active real estate Broker licenses in both New York and Hawaii. Ask Rick what he's passionate about and he'll tell you stories from working with famous musicians to building multi-million dollar log homes and collaborating with planning boards. But the glint in his eyes when he talks about his Hawaii investment properties and his move to Maui is a dead giveaway: his present and future is firmly rooted in the 50th state.
