Some kind words people have said about me:

"I'd say he's a rock star, but he doesn't throw Coke Machines off of balconies. Nope, he's one of the most well-adjusted creative people I've come across in years. Everybody loves this guy. Account people. Planners. Creatives. The reason why is simple: he possesses two qualities that don't normally come in one package. He's both humble and brilliant. And should you be the least bit interested in luring him away based on this, know that he also has extremely poor hygiene, sneaks homoerotic words into his body copy, and busts up furniture when things don't go his way. There, that ought to do it."

- Cameron Day, Creative Director

"The first time I heard about Ricky was from my former creative director. He basically told me that we couldn't move forward as a creative department without him. Naturally, I was a bit skeptical. But the minute I met him I knew my CD was onto something. The first thing that stood out to me about Ricky was his ability to come up with awesome ideas. Lots of 'em. His minimum goal for every brief is at least a one show pencil. I can confidently say that a pencil is at the bottom of Ricky's standards. Another thing that immediately stood out to me is his writing ability. His copy reads effortlessly. Almost like your thinking it, not reading it. Other than that, he has a huge understanding of digital, he's pretty hilarious, he's very smart, he used to have a massive beard, and he's sick at foosball. In fact, he's taught me several shots, including the snake, which happens to be a professional level move. "

- Adam Nelson, Art Director
