Ricky has been playing the guitar from the age of 14. He was unable to take professional lessons as a kid so instead he would dedicate himself to playing for ten hours a day during the summers with nothing more than a Hal Leonard Guitar Method book and a little help from his mother with knowledge on music theory. Ricky gained his love for the guitar listening to the classics, growing up with influences in anything and everything that could possibly be played on a guitar. His mother's roots in music strengthened his passion to master the strings. 'My goal is to share my music with anyone who can be blessed by it. God gave me the gift of music, and I want to use it to share with the world the true gift that God has given me; salvation and an eternal life in Heaven."
