He primarily focuses on Lewis and Clark, but also handles Oregon Trail history. He's a cultural historian, inspirational "edu-trainer" and leadership imagineer.

He's also penned over a dozen books on history, leadership, creative communication and education. In 2020 Rick authored GenTech: An American Story of Technology, Change and Who We Really Are.
