Raised in the friendly confines of Buffalo, NY, Rick graduated from Hobart College before moving to Ohio where he attained a master’s degree from Kent State University. After years as a high school teacher and coach, he found his professional passion for helping families with their financial and tax planning in 2013 and hasn’t looked back.
Rick resides in Canfield, OH with his wife Sharon who was kind enough to adopt his last name. Their two boys, Baron and Klaus, keep them on the move and provide perpetual entertainment, while their 150lb dog—a Dogue de Bordeaux named Napoleon—keeps the wolves at bay.
How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
I am always growing as a father, husband, friend and professional.
What is something most don’t know about you?
In 5th grade, my class travelled to Toronto to see "The Phantom of The Opera." I came to really enjoy Broadway Musicals and appreciate having the shared experience with the crowd.
What do you do in your free time?
Working out and coaching wrestling gives me my competitive fix, but there is no time more cherished than that spent teaching my sons how to read, play ball, etc. Sharon and I also frequently entertain and have been known to host bourbon tastings and holiday parties.
What are your wardrobe constants?
Crisp white t-shirts.
What is something interesting someone has said about you?
That my wingspan is comparable to an American Bald Eagle.
