Being very animated himself, he’s the guy that will do pretty much anything to get his team motivated. Since he can remember, Ric has been obsessed with animation technology , games, cartoons, SyFy and Kung Fu movies.

Ric has worked anywhere from television to award winning cinematic. He’s been part of multiple projects with the responsibility of taking on some fierce deadlines. He has worked on titles such as Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, Aliens and Thor.
