Born and raised in Las Vegas, as were his parents before him, Ricci graduated from the prestigious Bishop Gorman High School before obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Communications with an emphasis on print journalism from UNLV. He went on to build a name for himself on the Las Vegas Strip, West Hollywood and Rodeo Drive, working extensively to style celebrities and cultural influencers who enjoy his unique brand of white-glove service. Also known as a Hollywood voice-over actor, Lopez-Hammargren grew up performing on the stage, and is the son-in-law of the former Nevada Lt.

“Liberace’s influence on style, fashion and pop culture is tremendous and undeniable. I look forward to continued work with this incredible Board of Directors to make sure our Las Vegas icon remains in the global spotlight.”

“Several large and important artifacts added to the Liberace Museum Collection were acquired from the Hammargren collection in recent years,” Says Liberace Foundation Chairman Jonathan Warren, “Ricci’s father-in-law knew Liberace and members of his family quite well. Our new board member’s connections, experience and skill set will be instrumental in the upcoming projects of the Foundation, as will, of course, his immutable style!”
