Originally from the Everett, WA area, Ricky attended the University of Washington where he studied Finance and International Business at the Foster School of Business, graduating in 2009. After working at a corporate job in Seattle for a couple of years, in 2012, he joined the Peace Corps for two years.
In the Peace Corps, he served posts in Mora and Bafang, Cameroon where he taught business courses, taught IT courses, and coached baseball. This time abroad shaped his path. In Cameroon, he saw powerful people get what they wanted while others suffered. This is when he knew that he would become a lawyer to safeguard against such overreach.
