Ryan has worked all over the Rock and Pop scene of the entertainment executive protection industry. He’s been at it for over 20 years and so he is a wealth of knowledge. He also started in his early 20s around 22 years old so he’s grown up in this game…
Growing up in this game is almost like evolving in dog years when it comes to what we do. Many professionals dabble in and out of executive protection for many years before getting on a full-time contract, and so while they may claim to do Executive Protection it is simply that, they don’t make a living providing Executive Protection, they just do it every once in a while.
Guys like myself and Ryan have only had maybe one other job just for a few years of our entire adulthood. This interview showcases the depth of his understanding of the lifestyle he’s lived for the past 20 years all over the world in the shadows of people you all know the names of.
Even after living a life with so much access, experience, and operating at the top of the entertainment industry, Ryan is a down to earth guy who will tell you straight up “check your ego or it will get you checked“ not only do I always appreciate that but we all need to hear it from time to time! There’s something in this episode for everyone… ENJOY!
