“Having Ryan as a teacher and guide has completely changed my life.  I couldn’t imagine a better teacher/mentor if I tried. He is knowledgeable and wise while still being relatable and fun.  He gives you all the information you need, but encourages individualism and finding your own personal path and way of doing things.  I really could not recommend learning from Ryan enough.” –Madison
