Growing up on a secluded farm in rural southeast Kansas, Ryan spent the greater part of his childhood in the woods, plinking and hunting. Working and enjoying the outdoors were just a normal part of day to day life. No part of the landscape, from pop cans to squirrels, was immune to a 10 round burst from a Ruger.
Ryan earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemistry and Plastics Engineering as well as a Master’s of Science in Engineering Technologies. After graduating college, Ryan moved to Tulsa, OK to take a position as a plastics engineer and in 2011 began shooting 3-Gun competitively. Ryan still has a passion for hunting, but 3-gun gives Ryan and wife Dianna the opportunity to travel together and compete with and against amazing people.
As of 2014, Ryan and Dianna have become full time hunters and competitors, focusing most predominately on 3-Gun. In 2015, Ryan and Dianna traveled to over 36 events across the world, including Italy and New Zealand. You can find Ryan on ‘Shooting Gallery’ on The Outdoor Channel, and ‘Realtree.com’. Ryan has volunteered for HAVA and Freedom Hunters events getting wounded vets into competition and/or hunting.
