After getting married in 2001 to his beautiful wife Cheryl, Ricky founded a property maintenance and landscaping company and operated it for several years. He sold the business in 2005 and returned to the construction industry as a licensed general contractor and business owner in the the state of Tennessee.

He followed his passion for helping people, earned a degree in biblical studies, and became a pastor. After serving 10 years in vocational Christian ministry, Ricky desired to return to the construction industry. He likes to work with his hands and his heart.
