A life-long Alaskan, Ricardo has over 17 years of philanthropy experience and he currently serves as the Grants Manager at the Anchorage Museum Association. With family ties to the Bristol Bay region, Ricardo grew up in Eagle River and is a proud graduate of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks.
Outside of work, he is often digging in the garden, hiking in the hills, and exploring Anchorage’s network of cross-country skiing and biking trails with his partner, Glen. (But when the weather is bad, they are most often found looking for treasures at the thrift store.) Before joining the board in 2019, Ricardo served as volunteer on the community grant committee and believes deeply in the power of education to open the door to new opportunities. Ricardo and Glen are proud to be donors to Pride Foundation and are grateful for Pride Foundation’s efforts to strengthen the connections between LGBTQ communities in Alaska and around the Pacific Northwest.
