“The world is not the most pleasant place. Eventually your parents leave you and nobody is going to go out of their way to protect you unconditionally. You need to learn to stand up for yourself and what you believe, and sometimes, pardon my language, ‘kick some ass’!” – Queen Elizabeth II
Rick has created success in many areas including interior design and décor for restaurants, private homes and businesses. He excelled as a luxury brands specialist and gemologist in the duty free diamonds and luxury goods business for retailers and dozens of International brand partners in multiple ports of call throughout the Caribbean. His clients and brand partners have included Rolex, Cartier, David Yurman, John Hardy, Philip Stein, Patek Philippe, Diamonds Int'l, Hublot, Breitling, Piaget, Panerai, Ivanka Trump, Colombian Emeralds, Swarovski, Waterford, Tous and Lladro amongst dozens of others.
He is a Creative Director and photographer as well as an Executive Producer on major corporate, social and charitable events for Fortune 300 companies including Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corporation, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and countless others. Rick produced and directed live shows and has produced events for television as well as branding videos, sizzle reels and TV pilots. He manages talent and models around the world and has produced large and small events with style and an aesthetic based in haute couture, fine art, architecture and interpretive design in an all-encompassing environment with no detail untouched or overlooked.
On one of Rick’s recent event production projects for “The Real Housewives of Miami” on Bravo TV, “Life & Style” Magazine reported, it was “a dream ceremony that would make any Housewife jealous.”
Much of his success stems from a keen ability to listen to clients’ objectives and dreams, connect with them on a personal level, then serve as the conduit to achieve their goals both personally and professionally.
Rick is a visionary lifestyle, branding and marketing guru that brings extraordinary people together with extraordinary experiences and loves to mentor young, up-and-comers on what it means to live within a CODE of integrity to achieve their dreams and be truly extraordinary individuals.
“I love to connect extraordinary people with extraordinary experiences and hopefully inspire them to live extraordinary lives.”
Having grown up amongst the “Blue bloods of the Bluegrass” and the pomp and circumstance of the thoroughbred racing industry in Kentucky, Rick has a solid sense of the classic and the traditional and knows all the unspoken rules of design and etiquette, yet he knows when those rules can or should be broken to bring a fresh approach and innovative aspect to all of his projects.
As his revered grandmother, Ethel Brown McBrayer said, “If we can’t do it with class, we won’t do it at all!” and Rick has carried that through to everything he touches.
Rick goes “all in” on every detail of each project he approaches and offers his clients a way to connect themselves or their brands to the targeted demographic and specific goals whether it be corporate branding and marketing, bespoke Signature Events or in managing and connecting blue chip models to clients and agents around the world. Rick brings a level of knowledge and expertise to every project, every time.
“I’ve been fortunate to be able to work with an exclusive clientele with very discerning tastes and always look for unexpected opportunities to bring something new to the table with taste and finesse”.
