Originally from Central Massachusetts, Ryan attended Plymouth State University in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, studying outdoor education; after school, he moved to Jackson, Wyoming, for seasonal ranch work. Between work, he competed in martial arts tournaments and became an avid west coast swing dancer. As Ryan fell in love with the Rocky Mountains, he moved north to Bozeman at the end of the summer season.
Ryan prides himself on his philanthropic work, including horse therapy, fundraising, and multiple trips to Nicaragua, where he builds homes, plants coffee, and does various projects with the local populace.
Working in construction for two years, Ryan decided to change course and join Fay Ranches to pursue his interest in business and real estate. Ryan enjoys trail running the various trails of the Bridgers, traveling all around the world, including Italy, France, and Switzerland, horseback riding, dancing, and, if he’s on either coast, surfing!
