In 2017, French Canadian adult director and writer Ricky Greenwood started in the industry with a push from Mile High Media Vice President John Blitt, who has always been a genius when it comes to spotting true talent. Ricky came from a mainstream background working in television, reality TV, documentaries, feature films, and shorts—all this prepared him to take over the adult industry in the last four years.

The multi-award-winning director and writer is known for his story-driven feature films, like Confessions of a Sinful Nun 2: The Rise of Sister Mona, Terror Camp, Talk Derby to Me, and Killer on the Loose. Over the past three years, he’s become known as a multi-faceted director that works in the straight, gay, trans, and lesbian realms, and has worked with top-shelf studios like Sweetheart Video, TransSensual, Icon Male, Marc Dorcel, Adult Time, AllHerLuv, and MissaX. Ricky has won multiple XBIZ Awards for All-Girl Movie of the Year, Best Editing, and Director of the Year — Trans three times, Director of the Year from the AVN Awards and Best Lesbian Movie or Limited Series, Best Girl/Girl Release from the Urban X Awards, Best Ruining Xmas for Adult Time’s The Bargain from the Bazowie Awards, and Best All-Girl Release Editor’s Choice and Best Feature Production Fans’ Choice from the NightMoves Awards, and “The Bargain” snagged him Best AltPorn Feature Video from the AltPorn Awards and Best Ruining Christmas from the Bazowie! Awards. He’s also received over 300 award nominations for his directing, scenes, art direction, screenplays, cinematography, and editing in all the genres he works in from AVN, XBIZ, TEAs, Fleshbot, NightMoves, XCritic, Urban X, XRCOs, and Inked Awards. In 2021, Ricky was interviewed by Hustler in a piece that captures the iconic director in his element, and again in 2022 in a piece that mixes horror and adult content.

Ricky is one of the hardest-working men in adult and loves to give his audiences a glimpse into the projects he’s working on from start to finish in photos on his Twitter @RickyGreenwoodX and Instagram @x_ricky_greenwood_x. You might also see more than a few adult performers you know in his timelines and posts.
