Rick was born in a suburb of Detroit in June of 1966. The family lived there until August 1968 when they moved to England (his dad accepted a transfer with one of the "Big 3" Auto manufacturers). They lived there until 1974, then returned to Michigan. They lived in Michigan until another transfer took the family to Australia in August of 1977. 5 years later the family moved back to the States, this time to California, where Rick finished High-School. That's where Rick began his acting career...in High-School plays. Rick is married to a woman whom he met "in the business." She is a screenwriter. They have two children.
