Rick Rubin

Rick Rubin began interpreting in 1977 after learning American Sign Language (ASL) from a Deaf college roommate, and received formal training at Gallaudet College, in Washington DC. In the early 1980s, he interpreted for performances at San Diego Public Theater and, since moving to New York, has interpreted for over 70 theatrical productions on and off Broadway.  Rick has worked extensively as a freelance interpreter mainly in New York and California, and has provided his services for conferences and tours in 15 countries in North America, Europe and Asia.  He is most proud to be associated with Hands On and their reputation for excellence in interpreted theater.  Rick’s first Hands On assignment was Company in 1994, and his most recent was Sunday in the Park with George in 2008.
