Born and raised in an Australian coastal town, Ryan discovered his passion at a very young age -- flight. Aviation would be the dominant fixture in the young Australian’s life, providing some amazing but also traumatic, life-altering experiences. Ryan is a master of adversity and an ardent believer that life is won and lost above the shoulders---your mind can be either your most powerful asset or the determinant of your failure. He proved his mental fortitude by making history as a record-breaking pilot but demonstrated his mastery by learning to walk again and fighting his way back into the sky. Now based in Nashville, Tennessee, Ryan is equipped and eager to transform your organization with a unique, unpredictable, and unforgettable keynote.
