Patriot, Veteran, Entrepreneur, Family Man… Executive Voice. Ryan was born in Hartford, CT but moved to south Florida at a young age. Ryan grew up participating and
excelling in Academics and every sport he could get his hands on. Ryan became an active member of the local Boys and Girls Club where at a young age he was recognized with the
highest organization honor of “Youth of the Year”.
Ryan began finding his passion in instructing and helping others as he grew towards his post high school ambitions. In 1997 Ryan accepted his nomination to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis Maryland where his drive and motivation would help him earn a spot within the Brigade Staff Ranks prior to his graduation and Commissioning into the United States Marine Corps. In the Marine Corps, Ryan continued his relentless drive to achieve success with the highest standards.
Ryan was quickly recognized for his leadership skills and appointed to open the leadership and close combat school for young Marines at Pensacola, Florida while awaiting his appointment to Flight School. After graduating first in his class at flight school, Ryan became a UH-‐1 Huey pilot under his own desires and made his way through fleet training again as first in his class. After reporting to HMLA-‐269, the Gunrunners, in North Carolina, Ryan began his rapid climb to the top of the USMC Aviation qualifications with his eye on becoming a MAWTS-‐1 Weapons and Tactics Instructor course graduate. After multiple deployments in support of OIF / OEF and Humanitarian operations, Ryan succeeded in his goal to obtain the highest level certification a Marine Corps Aviator can achieve, and he did so at a very young age. After graduating 1st in his class from MAWTS, Ryan returned to his unit to lead another deployment in support of OEF after which he was selected to return to MAWTS-‐1 as staff instructor.
