Ryan was born and raised in the small town of Sanford, NC. He recently graduated from the University of North Carolina — Chapel Hill, where he studied both Religious Studies and Computer Science. After graduation, Ryan spent six months working in technology at an investment bank, followed by three months living amongst refugees in northern France. During his time in Chapel Hill, Ryan regularly volunteered in small groups with incarcerated youth at a local detention center. Because of this experience, Ryan is a passionate believer in small group teaching, as it fosters advocacy and mentorship on a personal level. He looks forward to putting these beliefs into practice as a BETA in order to empower students to realize and reach their goals.
