Music has always been a huge part of Ryan's life. Born in a small town in Southern Alberta, Ryan came from a musical family and was heavily influenced by his older brother who played guitar. Always surrounded by music, Ryan picked up his first guitar at age 13 and hasn't put it down since.

Growing up, Ryan was exposed to a lot of music by his older siblings so bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Van Halen worked their way into his head at a very early age. At age 8 Ryan saw his first Motley Crue video and decided music would have to be a large part of his life. But it wasn't until his early teens when he got his hands on a cd entitled "Master of Puppets" by a band called Metallica that Ryan finally found a band he could identify with.

Playing in several bands over the years, Ryan formed the group LIXX that was able to achieve some success until disbanding in 2002. While searching for his next musical project, Ryan happened upon an add on the internet looking for a singer for a Metallica tribute band "Disposable Heroes". It was apparent immediately that the four musicians had great chemistry and the rest is a still-evolving history.

Some of Ryan's influences include: James Hetfield & Kirk Hammett(Metallica), Eddie Van Halen, Zakk Wylde, Mick Mars & Nikki Sixx(Motley Crue), Slash, Jimi Hendrix, Tony Iommi(Black Sabbath), Darrell (Dimebag) Abbott, Dave Mustaine(Megadeth), Jim Morrison & Robby Krieger(The Doors), Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) and many many more.
