Rick is the owner of Agape Travel. Much of Rick’s early travel was in the United States Navy. He was Hospital Corpsman for The Night Dippers, HS-5; his squadron did three deployments on board the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69). During Rick’s time in the Navy, he spent time in the Indian Ocean, North Atlantic, Mediterranean, and the beautiful USA.

Rick was a traffic fatality investigator and received several awards including Life Saving. Rick regularly appeared on local TV reality show and spent many hours as a volunteer speaker for the Military stationed in the area. Rick’s love for the military gave him the opportunity to speak to hundreds of service men and women about traffic safety and the dangers of drinking and driving. When Rick isn’t cruising you can find him on a baseball field. Rick is a baseball umpire working all levels from youth to college. Rick is from a small town in central Florida, Lake Alfred.
