Ryan grew up on 26-acre plot of land in Kansas, where his family kept cattle, a few horses, and as many as three German shorthairs at any given time. He graduated from Southwestern College in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in English and minors in history, criminal justice, and leadership.
He moved to northeast Kansas to attend law school. Ryan currently lives in Topeka with his wife and dog. Outside of the office, he is usually reading one of the many books on his bookshelves or hiking trails in search of a bird he’s never seen.
