Rick began his title insurance career in 1983 starting out as a Sales Executive in the coastal community of Huntington Beach, where he grew up attending Edison High School. Rick went on to attend UCLA, where he was the starting quarterback for 3 seasons from 1977 to 1979. He attributes his work ethic and team-oriented attitude directly to his UCLA experience.
