About The Secrets of the Masters

As he went about interviewing clinicians and educators for various conferences, articles, and seminars, Rick realized how tightly professionals guard their personal lives and private feelings, their own histories and even “oops” moments. But why not share those very things that make them feel more approachable, more human, more interesting? And so The Secrets of the Masters was born.

Pre-pandemic, he conceived of a series of interviews of noted authorities done together in informal personal settings; but as travel and meetings became increasingly impossible, Rick switched seamlessly to a video model and feels the results are even better than the process he’d originally envisioned.

About Gay Sons and Mothers

Rick has brought his model of enhancing richness in interpersonal interactions to the nonprofit organization he founded and of which he is executive director, Gay Sons and Mothers. After learning that there was virtually no literature on the topic of this obviously important relationship, he has created a way of educating groups, businesses, and individuals about the unique and powerful influence mothers have on their gay sons.
