Ryan was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where he learned the value of honesty, integrity, and a good work ethic. He moved to East Texas in 2012 to attend LeTourneau University. During his time at LeTourneau, he met the love of his life, Mariah, and was married in 2015. He graduated with his Bachelor of Science in Aircraft Systems in 2016 and began work as an aircraft mechanic. Aircraft maintenance greatly helped to hone Ryan’s skills in organization, time management, and teamwork. After experiencing poor management and an unexpected layoff in the aviation industry, Ryan turned his attention to a career in law enforcement, hoping to use his great passion for helping people. He served with the Longview Police Department where he grew his interpersonal and stress management skills. Despite Ryan’s strong desire to serve the community through law enforcement, it became apparent that his desire to help people and foster good relationships could be better used in another capacity. Ryan decided to put his great drive, desire to serve, and strong work ethic into real estate.

Ryan earned his license in October of 2018 and joined JWA. With wide-ranging experience across multiple fields, Ryan brings a unique perspective and invaluable insight to his clients. He enjoys working on projects with his wife and daughter, traveling, and being involved in his church. He is committed to living his life by the simple principle, “Love God, Love Others.”
