Ryan grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to San Diego 7 years ago! Needless to say, he loves it and feels like he is finally home! Ryan is often found playing beach in South Mission and is the President of the Board for San Diego Beach Improvement Group (BIG), a local non-profit that maintains the 7 men’s and 7 women’s volleyball nets in South Mission.
Ryan first started playing, indoor and beach volleyball in 6th grade. After that he started playing with his cousin and best friend Stephen McGuire in 2000. Since then he has played volleyball in organized leagues 2-4 days a week, playing beach seasonally and then transitioning to indoor during the winters in Cleveland. Although he played very competitive and organized USAV indoor tournaments, his true passion is beach! Second to playing beach, is coaching and sharing what volleyball has given so many of us! It is more than a sport, it is a way of life full of family and friends!
Ryan has coached at COAST for multiple seasons and headed up indoor teams and also coached several of the indoor youth programs including Volleytots, Girls Clinics and the the Fall Local Program.
