Ricky was born and raised in Indiana, popularly known as "the Crossroads of America." After graduating with a degree in Chemistry from Wabash College and running a tech consulting business for a couple of years, he moved to Boston and later Korea where he married Sujeong. They live in Old Tappan with their two active sons (Noah and Caleb). Ricky is in technical sales by profession, but tries to spend time when he can, helping with homeschooling, taking photos when he is not riding his bike or doing Crossfit. He is grateful for God's massive blessings in His Son, this church, and the ability to co-labor in ministry.
