Ricky is the Community Manager at Real Python.

He is also a freelance Python developer and Writer who has a tendency to refer to himself in the third person. By day he is a stay-at-home dad, and by night he’s a crime-fighting ninja. He can often be found cursing at autocomplete / intellisense for writing what he said and not what he meant.

In his ‘spare’ time, he teaches martial arts, collects Bonsai trees, and volunteers his time to a non-profit which he helped co-found.

Other fun facts about Ricky:

  • His favorite color is blue.
  • His favorite food is “anything that’s going.”
  • He used to work as a Registered Nurse.
  • His favorite quote:

    “Once you stop learning, you start dying” — Albert Einstein
