Answers more commonly to “Yo-eee,” Ryan started out with dreams of Hollywood. As life would have it, he ended up graduating from The Ohio State University with a dual BS/BA in NOT Theatre; nailed that dream! After (barely) surviving the Food/Beverage, Fitness, and eCommerce industries, he joined the ranks of IT Healthcare, where he met and joined the cast. Now, he attempts to find a work/life balance, rediscovering joys including acting (a fool)! He also likes screaming at motorists, lifting heavy and adventuring with Klaus the Wonder Hound, playing video games, practicing Reiki, encouraging personal fitness (in order to support nonstop eating), and slowly embracing his inner Otaku. Bring him sushi and you have a friend for life. He is the only current core troupe member who did not start with us from the beginning, but earned his way in anyway,
