Originally raised in Minden, Nevada, Ryan (aka Goose) found himself settled in the Pacific Northwest immediately following his college years at the University of Puget Sound, where he played football as a linebacker and defensive end.
Prior to moving to Seattle, Ryan served in the 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army as an airborne infantryman. He was stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC and spent time deployed overseas in Afghanistan.
With a yearning to continue following his passion of self-improvement and helping others, Ryan began training in Krav Maga in May 2017 with a goal of developing the practical skill of self-defense. He became a Krav Maga instructor in May 2019 to help others do the same.
In his free time, Ryan loves following all things college football and cheering on his pro baseball team, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
