Ricky’s a lifelong Nintendo fan and Nintendo Wire's communications lead (as well as a longtime writer and editor), keeping our team connected with developers, publishers, and more for over five years. They're who you want to talk to about potential partnerships and coverage of your games here on Nintendo Wire.
Born and raised in San Diego, Ricky's held a passion for writing since middle school and for video games as far back as they can tell. After graduating from the University of California, San Diego, they lived abroad in Japan to experience more of the world, put their ability to communicate to the test, and fulfill a life-long dream. During those years, they also taught English in both Japan and the United States, studied creative writing, and have been featured in local publications.
Ever since getting a Game Boy along with copies of Kirby’s Dream Land 2 and Pokémon Red, Ricky’s loved Nintendo's games and characters - with Kirby an all time favorite. Up for nearly any genre, his favorites include cute puzzle games, RPGs, fighting games, and platformers. If you ever want to talk Fire Emblem strategies or the beauty of EarthBound's storytelling, look no further.
