Originally from New York, Ricky moved to Amsterdam where he now works in the Mill’s Amsterdam Studio as Creative Director.  After working in NY as a VFX Supervisor and Lead Flame Artist for the past 20 years, he decided to explore new creative outlets across the Atlantic ocean with his family.  With both a penchant for pixels and pastries, the European market seemed like a wonderful and logical next step.

Ricky learned his craft in New York City’s “School of Visual Arts (SVA)” where he was classically trained in drawing and the digital arts of Animation and Compositing.  His mastery of the subject came while working as a freelancer in New York for the better part of 20 years.

Over the past 7 years in the Amsterdam Studio, Ricky has worked on such accounts as Adidas, Asics, Bulgari, Pepsi, Milka, Qatar Airlines, and Samsung.
