Ric is an active musician in the Springfield area. He and his wife Treva play in a local band, Treva and the TroubleMakers. Music has been part of Ric's life since his parents enrolled him in the school band in 3rd grade. He was fortunate that they could afford lessons and instrument rental so he could participate in the school music program. Now he wants to help other children less fortunate experience the joy of music that he did when he was young.
Ric works with Rick Snelson at CMT Group Inc (Car-Fi and Competitive Audio). When he heard that Rick was getting involved with Play It Forward SWMO, he wanted to contribute. Ric built the Play It Forward SWMO web site design, developed the social networking and helps with graphic arts for the Springfield chapter.
