Ryan grew up in southern Maryland as a member of a military family.

At a young age he was shown the value of hard work, and that taking pride in his work was the key to success. That has stuck with him over the years as he learned the trade of auto mechanics, became a certified welder, and learned the techniques to hone and restore any natural stone surface.

Now with a family of his own, he is overjoyed to pass on these values and set the example for baby Lexxi.
