Rick began hiking and backpacking in the mountains of New England over twenty years ago. Eventually, his passion for the mountains led him into rock climbing, ice climbing and alpine mountaineering. He has climbed in Yosemite National Park, the Canadian Rockies and at crags all over the northeast. He was co-leader of Summit Sensations ascent of Mt. Rainier (via the Kautz Glacier) in 2018. He has hiked in the Swiss Alps and is nearing the completion of the NH 48 4000 footers (when not distracted by rock or ice climbing objectives).
When not in the mountains, Rick’s passion for travel has taken him to Central America and on numerous trips to Europe. He is a former member of the Board of Directors for Medway Youth Baseball and has volunteered to coach countless youth sports teams over the past 10 years . He lives in Medway, MA with his wife and two teenage boys.
