Ryan was born in Halifax and was raised in Windsor, N.S. Ryan began paddling at the age of 7 in Pisiquid's summer program and went on to become the first Pisiquid athlete to go to the Junior Worlds, Canada Games, Senior Worlds, Pan Am’s and the Olympics in 2012 & 2016. Ryan and his brother Justin won Gold in U18 Mens K2 500 at the National Championships representing Pisiquid.
While he now lives in Quebec with his wife and children and represents the Lac Beauport Canoe & Kayak Club, Ryan remains a big supporter of PCC and we are lucky enough to have him pay a visit now and then.
