Before coming to HGI, Ryan was a combat engineer in the U.S. Marine Corps for 3 years immediately following graduation from high school. Working in the USMC in combat engineering, he trained to alter the battlefield through; the location and identification of landmines, planning and construction of obstacles and fighting positions, and construction and placement of demolitions, creating a valuable team player and ready leader. Adapting to diverse environments, low supplies, and changing roles and responsibilities earned him respect for adaptability and resiliency while maintaining clear and quick communication.
