I’m Ricky, an SVP Creative Director at BBDO New York, and Photographer.

I’m inspired by the why, and motivated by the how.

I work across brand, product and experience, creating ideas that serve people, empower clients and drive brands forward.

I possess over a decade of knowledge, creating genre-defining work for brands such as Nike, Meta, Virgin, Volvo, Activision, IBM, Ford, Verizon and Apple.

I’ve received some of the biggest industry awards and personal honours, but I’ll never get complacent and I’m always striving to reach new heights. 

I’ve developed an international perspective, having lived in New York, London, Tokyo and Brisbane, collaborating with world-class talent and nurtured rising stars.

I love to channel my passion for adventure by capturing the world from the skies with my drone.

I’m also privileged to be a 49% stakeholder in the creative powerhouse that is rickyandjoe.com.
