Rick grew up locally in Oxon Hill, MD, but has lived from coast to coast. He graduated from the Naval Academy, and spent a 21 year career flying for the Navy. Several years ago, he crossed paths with the founder of OCR-Unleashed while getting introduced to Obstacle Course Racing. After the experiences and passion for OCR and those that participate set in, he followed Tim’s tutelage and took over as the Director and Head coach of OCR-U. Today, he keeps the lights on and the training going at OCR-U while Tim expands the training for our teams at his indoor facility, OCR Otherworld.
Rick has a passion for teaching; gets great satisfaction out of watching new athletes try and succeed at the challenges they never thought they would set for themselves.
Rick is a certified ASFA Group Fitness/Boot Camp instructor, and is trained in working with Adaptive Athletes.
