Ryan has been facilitating since 2004 when he was involved with a group in Vernon, BC called "Critical Response to Racism". Taking these skills forward he has worked as a facilitator throughout British Columbia talking about subjects ranging from homophobia and transphobia to sexual health.

During his first year in Vancouver Ryan received training from Gab Youth Services at Qmunity (then called The Centre). He followed this up with training through what is now PeerNetBC. As time went on Ryan worked as a facilitator with Gab Youth Services. However, as he was from a small town, his passions were focused on working with rural high schools. In 2008 he took his training and workshop outline back to his hometown and performed a series of workshops for his old high school in Salmon Arm, BC. He presented in classrooms all over the school district, including presentations for his own teachers from only a few years before.

A year later Ryan branched out, working with Vancouver Coastal Health's PlanetAhead program teaching about sexual health. He continued to work with Gab Youth Services and with the North Okanagan School board. As a facilitator he also branched into film, working with Out in Schools as a facilitator as well.

As an independent facilitator Ryan is commonly asked to speak about homophobia, transphobia, bullying and discrimination.

In 2015 Ryan completed his Bachelor of Social Work at the University of Victoria.
