Coach Ryan grew up all over the world, as his father was in the Air Force. His ability to find his place in the community came via his love of sports. He played basketball, baseball, soccer, and tennis at the highest level in places like Greece to Maryland and finally ending in Redmond, WA.

He has been a volunteer coach for his kids throughout the years. Coach Ryan’s goal is to help create a ladies basketball program where there is a foundation of hard work and a strong sense of team. He believes by putting in the work and building each other up, the ladies will have the confidence to compete to the best of their abilities and win!

Ryan lives in Duvall with his family and runs his own financial advisory business. When he is not on the court, he enjoys spending time with his family outdoors, golfing, attending sporting events and traveling.
