Rick was born and educated in Canada. He was born in a small town in Saskatchewan and graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Finance and Accounting. Rick joined PricewaterhouseCoopers in Calgary, Alberta after graduation. He was admitted to the partnership in 1993. Rick transferred to Houston in 1999 to run the Corporate Merger & Acquisition Practice in Houston, and then retired 15 years later. HE has spent the last 15 years travelling the world brokering oil and gas deals. But his passion is teaching and mentoring and he loves history. Therefore, he’s come out of retirement to pursue my passion. Rick loves to teach Economics and Government and plans on developing an elective course in investing and stock market valuation. He loves to golf, watch football and baseball (college and pro) and can’t wait to travel for leisure instead of business.
