Ryan was born and raised in South Florida and, one time, when he was nine, a manatee surfaced two feet from his kayak and he thought he was going to die. Ever since he graduated from Florida State, he’s been making a living writing about Miami, which has led him to be in the same room as Rick Ross, Trina, and - ever since he joined The Infatuation - some truly magnificent sandwiches.
