Ryan would claim to be a tinker, a tailor, a soldier, and a spy, but in truth he couldn’t hem a pair of pants. He developed his interest in storytelling as a cadet at the United States Air Force Academy, where he discovered theater as part of the Academy’s Bluebard’s Theater Troupe. His live action career has taken him from California to New York, producing over two dozen events in four states, as well as running events for hundreds (and one time, thousands) of people. Outside of larp, Ryan is a military and airline pilot with over 1,500 hours over Iraq and Afghanistan. He also has a teenage child who has been known to larp with him on occasion.
