ABOUT ME


 

Rick Pruett, a multi cultural chameleon, inherited the thirst for adventure from his mother, a talented thespian and fellow scribe. He started writing poetry as a child and as he honed his skills, he found a true knack for writing lyrics and musical compositions. His world travels have allowed him to develop a unique artistic palette which is reflected in the diversity of his craft. During the mid-eighties, Rick worked as a beach boy, party starter and public relations rep in Waikiki. He surfed every single day while on the islands and often well into the night. "The lifestyle called to me, it was a dream come true, an adventure that impacted my life in a major way."
