His easygoing, up-front style quickly made him a favourite of television viewers from coast-to-coast. From his flying leap off a jagged cliff with Sean Paul, to diving out of an airplane with the Foo Fighters, to the pounding he took from pro wrestler, Cain, Rick's willingness to go the distance speaks volumes about his work ethic and dedication.
Hailing from Hamilton, Ontario, Rick grew up wanting to be a professional soccer player, a pilot, an astronaut and an artist (he used to win colouring competitions as a child for his uncanny ability to draw within the lines).
Shortly after graduating from Brock University in St. Catharines with a degree in Physical Education, Rick won a contest to temp at the renowned MuchMusic headquarters in Toronto. It was then that he found his true career calling — to work in the world of television.
In the fall of 2005, after nearly 10 loyal years at MuchMusic, Rick joined the revered Entertainment Tonight brand with the launch of ET Canada on Global.
Rick's hobbies include on-line poker, working with the various charities and spending time with his son, Noah.
