Ryan was born in Bonavista in 1990. After graduating High School Ryan went to College of the North Atlantic on the Burin Peninsula where he took the Commercial Cooks course. Ryan and his wife Holly moved to St. John's and fell in love with the city. Ryan says "Growing up out home your limited to what you can do as a kid, I spent most of my days in the kitchen with my great Aunt Ruby and of course, my mother Eleanor. I had a passion for cooking and it kept me out of trouble.  I dreamt as a kid of being lots of things like an Architect, a Pilot, and of course, a Chef.  I’m one of the lucky ones as I’m living my dream.  I’ve worked a few places since we came here, but since I started working with Evan, I have never felt more like I’m doing what I was put on this earth to do!  We have a family here and I’m so happy to be one of them."
