Hi I'm Ryan

I'm from a small town in eastern Pennsylvania. I rap. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of 5. We moved around a lot when I was a kid. I have lived in Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. I've wanted to create things since I was little. When asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" my answer was an inventor. Then, it was an animator. Then it was a graphic designer. And then I found music. I started writing lyrics and rapping. I learned to record. Then I tried to make beats. I took music theory, learned how to compose, and worked on my singing. As a disclaimer, my music is clean. I also like to play basketball. I will be attending college at BYU in 2017 for industrial design and music.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the church to a faithful Mormon family. However, I had to gain a testimony for myself. I experienced doubts, but I decided to test the scriptures. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know of its truth when I had finished. I felt a very positive sensation in my mind and my heart. The thought was confirmed to me that the book was true through the Holy Spirit. I am a Mormon because I love living with the companionship of the Holy Ghost. I feel God's love and I love Him. The guidelines that Mormons choose to follow have blessed my life immensely. Without the church and my savior Jesus Christ, I would not be where I am today.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example to others. I am a child of God, as is everyone else. I have a testimony of Him and Jesus Christ and I try to represent them to the best of my ability. I try to make others feel included and loved. I serve people and take care of myself. I keep my body free of harmful and addictive substances. I refrain from swearing, tattoos, and piercings. I keep myself chaste. As I finish high school, I am preparing to serve a two-year proselyting mission for the LDS Church in Sacramento, California. I will be speaking Spanish. Overall, I am working towards being a good person, husband, and father. I strive to follow God's commandments and live as He would have me live.
