From a long line of welders, carpenters, and construction workers, Ryan never ever imagined a career as a model, and indeed had begun an apprenticeship as a drywaller. But a chance meeting with Sean Penhall from Want Management has changed all of Ryan’s plans. That was about a year ago, and Ryan has downed tools and pursued fashion in Canada and Asia ever since. With those dreamy blue eyes, dimpled chin, and strong profile, as well as his lean body (honed by surfing and snowboarding), Ryan is a natural. Now focused on New York and Europe after summer ends, Ryan has the right look, attitude, and motivation to make it in any city. Could this be the start of a new family tradition?
