Meet Ricky

As a young child, Ricky became infatuated with seeing the world. Since 2014, he has earned and burned tens of millions of points in pursuit of that dream, while indulging in the best airline cabins, luxury hotels, and exclusive lounges the world has to offer.

Ricky is motivated to inspire others to explore the globe just like he has. With Miles & Points, those aspirations aren’t as out of reach as many may think, and he’s passionate about showing others what they can achieve. He’s an avid community builder and has presented at several travel conferences in the past.

Ricky founded Prince of Travel in 2017 and has been thrilled to watch his creation spread its wings. With a rapidly growing team and countless new projects in the pipeline, his focus is shifting towards the big-picture growth of the company, while remaining the go-to voice of the brand.

In his spare time, Ricky enjoys skiing, watching European football, and attempting to be a competent cat dad. He calls many places home and currently resides in Vancouver.
