    Ryan joined Touchstone in 2007 to feed his climbing addiction. He holds an AA in theology and a BS in geology, but one day hopes to become a stone master.

    When Ryan was a kid, he promised himself that he would be Superman, a pirate, Bruce Wayne, or a firefighter when he grew up.  He doesn’t plan on backing out of that promise. When Ryan was 3 he made his first million and when he was 10 he owned an empire of businesses.  You can mostly find him in the gym working or in the gym climbing or just in the gym.  Right now climbing is his life and he just wants to climb everything!
