New Jersey born Richard Ruskin began his acting career in New York City after traveling for a
year with a performing arts troupe. This followed finishing up his training at
Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts and Ithaca College. He got his start
working in everything from independent and mainstream productions to appearing on "Days of Our Lives."
After college, Richard made the move to Los Angeles. During the next 15 years, he started a
computer consulting company and later became a private pilot and
flight instructor. "Acting jobs just weren't happening for me at that time" says Rich.
Eventually, he got a touch of wanderlust, which led him to leave Los Angeles.
He went to Alaska, "...I guess I wanted to reset and start over.." he said..
There, he landed in a small village. "...almost fitting in..." he says with a wry
smile, "....it was a great experience (ten years) and ...I wouldn't change a thing"...
Next, the business world drew him away from the cold and eventually, to the Sunshine State
(Florida) where, "for some reason" he says, I started getting lots of acting work".
Film, TV, national commercials, "..it was was amazing.." he said, "I was like, oh,
so this is what an acting career looks like..."
In 2016, Richard relocated, again, to Manhattans Upper East Side. He started getting jobs
immediately and says he loves being back in New York.
When not acting, Ruskin enjoys SCUBA diving, flying and now, exploring New York City.
