Hi I'm Ryan

Born and raised in So-Cal, currently serving a mission in Nagoya Japan! I`m an adventurer, food junky, guitarist and Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy learning new things, fixing things by myself - who needs a professional? (me..sometimes), adventuring outdoors, writing and listening to music in a dimly lit garage, watching movies with friends, saying cheesy jokes, and exploring food and cultures from around the world. I was blessed by being given the opportunity to participate the Boy Scout program and have earned my Eagle Rank. Many of my most memorable moments are out in the middle of nowhere eating food that would make my mother cringe, getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, sleeping on foam pads under a starry sky, jumping in freezing water and nearly hacking at my feet of with axes. One thing I have learned from my many, many years of existence on earth is, if you take things seriously 100% of the time, you will miss out on so many great opportunities. Go where life takes you. You can`t change the currents! Never stop smiling, `cause when you do, you`ve forgotten all the reasons to smile!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the restoration. I know that God is a constant, perfect, and a never faultering or changing being. Because He is the same yesterday, today and forever, He has given us modern-day prophets. The proof of this is in the Book of Mormon. Read it and ponder it and I know that you will gain a testimony of the truthfulness of it`s message and come to the knowledge that it is true!

How I live my faith

I am on a mission in Japan! Everyday I talk with and befriend countless numbers of people. I try to share my own experiences and how such a simple thing like going to church can change someone`s life. Hopefully through my example I can help others!
