"Rick has an ability to be calm and lead without dominating. He is an attentive listener and served as a great bridge between the client and ourselves."

Barton Myers, Barton Myers Associates

"Everyone – the politicians and all the potential users – wanted to design the building. Rick's ability to listen well and respect other people's ideas is what enabled us to have a successful project. I don't know how we could have gotten through the programming phase and the project without him. He was absolutely instrumental."

Jody Ulich, former Director of Cultural Services, City of Tempe
