Rodrigo “Rico” Aquino born in Cabo Frio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was raised in Montreal and Miami – needless to say Rico is traveled and can speak four languages – touching upon various industry markets in the city.
Rodrigo has been a member of the Blocktrade family since the very beginning. He was the first to endorse the Blocktrade brand during his drifting. Being Alvaro Diaz’s right hand man, he operated and managed the Lakeshore studio in Oakville while producing, recording and mixing various beats for various artists – helping them develop their sound. He also brings to the table his experience in marketing, communications, project management, sales, customer service and overall business development strategies.
When not at work Rico is drifting, traveling and staying current on all social media trends and new technology. Rodrigo adds passion to all his endeavors and when asked why he chooses Blocktrade? He replied “I do it for the love”.
