Traveling the Crossroads of Spirituality and Social Change…

Good one of Rick Rick Bernardo
Spirit Road Co-founder/Artistic Director/Travel Host:
Rick grew up in a media family. His mother was Connecticut’s “Sealy Weather Girl” on Ch. 30, CBS; his father pioneered FM radio through WTYD in Southeastern CT. After earning degrees in science and religion, Rick devoted years to a combined career in community health… and entertainment. Besides his years as a musician and actor, Rick has done stand-up on ABC’s “America’s Funniest People” and in venues across the U.S. His non-profit work includes designing and directing statewide public health programs through the CA Medical Association and MN Dept. of Health that helped protect millions of lives. Rick teaches organizational leadership, business ethics, and cyber-tech ethics at Saint Mary’s University of MN, oversees communications and development for nonprofit causes, and presents multi-media educational programs on communications, ethics, and well-being for diverse audiences around the country.
