Director of Audio & Infrastructure
Hillsong Church Australia
Ricki Cook grew up on the Central Coast of New South Wales, around one hour north of Sydney, Australia. As a youth, he expressed interest in all things connected with electronics & communications; computers & networking, along with the internet were fascinating to him. In his later teens, he began investigating audio and then the live sound segment attracted his keen interest. His first job after school was for a local rental production company. After being inspired by the life story of Bruce Jackson, Ricki then made audio into a fulltime career, moving through various roles handling service & support, installations, live production and then onto global arena touring for various companies including the largest audio company in the southern hemisphere. In 2010 Hillsong Church invited him to start touring with Hillsong United on their biggest ever U.S. arena tour. Ricki is now the full-time Director of Audio & Infrastructure at Hillsong.
