Ricky is currently Principal Animator at Defiant Studios in NYC. He has been animating games since 2003 and has helped ship 5 action packed titles - Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Odyssey To The West, DmC: Devil May Cry, Just Cause 3 and Just Cause 4.
He got his start in games at Ninja Theory, during the pre-production phase of Heavenly Sword. Ricky's work quickly became the benchmark of quality within the company, where he spent over 10 years honing his skill as a combat, creature and action cinematic animator. Creating high quality content was one half of his responsibility there, the other was mentoring the team to achieve their very best. For Ricky it's more than just teaching mechanics and workflow, it's also about developing a deeper understanding of what drives us as animators to do the thing we love most. Animate!
