The Homefront staff would like to wish our longtime friend and newsletter photographer, Rick Kelly, all the best as he quietly moves on to retirement. Rick took over the photog duties when Mike Conaway left and proceeded to snap images for just about everything from holiday parties to peoples' pets. He’s responsible for that gorgeous morning image of Santa Catalina, a stunning panorama from Storke Tower, and an early morning sunrise over Manzanita… to name only a few. Enjoy the golden years Rick – you’ve earned them.
Rick began his career in Residential Dining Services in 1987 as the Annex Manager at De La Guerra. In 1990, he was promoted to Production Manager at Ortega and then moved to the Central Business Office in 2000. In 2005, Rick became the Budget Analyst for Dining, where he worked until his retirement in June. He is the proud father of two boys, Davis and Dawson, and lives with his wife Peggy in Santa Ynez.
