Finding passion in the outdoors through backpacking, and taking a camera along every time, brought Ricky to love making moments into art, and to love everything the world has to offer. His love and experience in these two things—art, and the outdoors, brought him to where he is as part of Mountain Made Life.
He aspires to create art for good, awareness, and the will for adventure. You can find him working at REI, educating and inspiring those to go outdoors and travel, or you could find him playing with cameras of all kinds at a used vintage camera shop. He could be running around San Francisco hunting for moments, or hiking over hills around The Bay Area, all the while holding camera in hand.
