Rico Austin, born and raised in Southwestern Idaho is the oldest of five boys. He grew up in an area that was ripe for adventures for him and his younger brothers and numerous cousins. His love of storytelling is infectious and this bitter sweet story will have you howling with laughter, grieving from tragedy and leaving you on the edge. Rico’s love of reading, exploring and traveling allured him to many parts of the globe including Lithuania where he taught English and capitalism, the United Kingdom where he studied and played American Football for the Staffordshire Stallions and Mexico to study Spanish, dance with senoritas, fish the open sea and drink tequila. Rico has undergraduate degrees from Boise State University, Grand Canyon University, Staffordshire University and a Master’s Degree from Thunderbird, School of Global Management. He and his wife live in Scottsdale, AZ and San Carlos, Sonora Mexico.
