From his experiences as a cofounder the past, Ricky's honed a personal philosophy that allows him to understand his projects and companies a ... t a variety of levels, from fundamental user interactions to marketplace positioning.

Aaron Schifrin
They're my school  •  CEO and Co-Founder, Daapr. Previously President, Cornell International Affairs Review. Cornell grad.
Ricky helped tremendously as I worked to recruit a team and get my startup off the ground and he continues to offer guidance to our technica ... l team. What sets Ricky apart, however, is his corresponding business experience. He knows how to supplement technical guidance with a broader emphasis on product and business development.
Charles Weill
They're my school  •  Developer/Sales Engineer, Broadway Technology. Previously Founder, PartyHere. Cornell grad. Cornell grad.
For one, he's experienced. He already working on his second tech startup, and when he was still in college, he helped develop Cornell's star ... tup community. He's a multi-talented individual who can both code like a champ and manage a budding business.
Jeran Fox

Ricky and I worked on a startup together in 2012 and 2013. I'm honored to be able to vouch for him now. Ricky is one of the most driven peop ... le I have ever met. He's bright, creative, and has a strong personality. He has invaluable experience from having worked on multiple startups, and unlike most who have "worked on startups", Ricky executes on his vision. He is a mover and shaker. I am extremely lucky to have been able to work with him at such capacity.
Lucas Ackerknecht

Ricky hustles. If he has an idea, he will follow through. He's also a capable programmer and has had prior experience founding and managing ... a team with Splat. As a student, he was a campus leader and helped grow Cornell's entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Scott Bergman
We worked together  •  IT Development Program, Apple. Previously Design and Product Lead, Splat. Cornell grad.
I think Ricky's greatest strength is his creativity. Ricky always had a vision for the product and experience that could exist many steps do ... wn the line. This gave us an exciting vision to work towards and made us rethink how we approached designing, developing, and branding our product in the present. Vision is important for knowing where you are going and motivating collaborators to get their with you. Ricky's creativity creates this exciting vision.
