Born and raised in Southwestern Idaho, Rico is the oldest of five boys, growing up on a meager
existence but in a area that was ripe for several adventures for him, his four younger brothers and
Rico grew up near farmland that produced potatoes, hay, hops, grain and corn. There were several
fruit orchards and vineyards in the Snake River Valley as well, due to the extraordinary fertile
soil. A couple of years out of high school he moved to Boise and enrolled at Boise State
University as a student and walk on football player. However, he could not escape the allure of
traveling the world and began writing and storing his experiences in hopes of someday becoming a
novelist. He began by reading every chance he had. From contemporary novels to classical
literature, Rico's love of storytelling was uncontrollable. He appeared occasionally at Boise's
former Comedy Club as a "Stand Up Comedian" retelling his stories of growing up in a comedic
Rico earned an Associate Degree in Marketing and Sales from BSU. After a few years of low level
management positions Rico moved to Hawaii for a short time surfing the waters of Kauai and
enjoying the outdoors. He then moved to Southern California for less than a year before heading
back to Idaho. In 1991 Rico moved to the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and continued his education
receiving a Bachelors of Business Administration in International Business at Grand Canyon
University and received "Outstanding International Business Graduate of 1995." That same
year he was also selected as "Mr. Future Business Executive" at the State Leadership
Conference which included all universities in the State of Arizona.
The summer before graduating Rico went to Vilnius, Lithuania and taught English (ESL).
During fall semester of his senior year at GCU Rico attended Staffordshire University in England
where he also started on the American Football Team for the Staffordshire Stallions.
Rico finished his Masters, an MBA in International Management at Thunderbird School of Global
Management with a focus on the Latin American Region and the Spanish language. He did
this while working full time as a feature writer and free lance journalist at the T-Bird school paper
"DAS TOR." A few of his articles at "DAS TOR" were written in Spanish by Rico specially for the
foreign students of Latin America.
Former Vice President Dan Quayle served as an "Invited Interim Professor by the Thunderbird
School President for 2 semesters" and Rico was fortunate enough to be one of 16 students selected
to attend his class.
*Special note, Rico received an "A" from the VP for the 2 credit elective class. Was it because
of Rico's performance on studies or VP Quayle was afraid of what Mr. Austin might write in the
Hollywood has even had an encounter with Rico. For those of you who watched Baywatch with
the beautiful Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, Mr. Rico Austin did a cameo appearance
in the episode "Day of the Dolphin" in 1997 where he played the role of a drug lord on a huge
yacht with sexy chicks. He and his graduate class mates watched the episode when it aired in the
"old clock tower hanger" together in the TV lounge. He was invited back for another episode by
Producer and Casting Director Susie Glickman, but had to decline due to a conflict with finals at
Thunderbird. Rico chose education over stardom, when questioned why, he responded "No one
can ever take your education away, everything else can come and go and, most likely
will." Rico also acted in a commercial for the local market in Boise, ID as a construction worker
in "That old House" sponsored by BMC West.
Rico is an avid fisherman and has traveled far and wide to cast his line into many waters; including
streams, lakes, ponds, rivers, seas and oceans.
He has worked for a few international companies as both a sales manager and a marketing
manager. In his spar
