Working as the Program Coordinator for TWC’s Alliance program, Rico enjoys seeing the love and hope come back into the eyes of the men who have fought so hard to get their lives back. He also loves to watch as queer and straight men break down barriers, judgements and fears they have had about themselves and others. Rico’s own journey through addiction allows him to have compassion and empathy for clients. His experience taught him that above all, we all need to be there for each other, no matter what. Rico loves camping, hiking, and being out in nature as much as possible.
