Ryan is currently a high school senior in the state of Connecticut. He is a staunch libertarian and agorist, believing that peaceful disobedience is the way to limit or end the destructive actions of the government. He was first introduced to the libertarian ideology through the campaigns of Ron and Rand Paul, gradually rejecting socially conservative beliefs in favor of liberty. Since then, Ryan has been influenced by the works of Samuel Konkin, Ludwig von Mises, and Leo Tolstoy. Ryan is a member of his school's debate club, and he guided his team to a tournament victory this year. He has also been on school teams for baseball, soccer, and golf, though he now prefers the individual sports of running and skiing. Last fall, Ryan completed his first marathon, and plans to run a fifty mile race this November. Outside of athletics, Ryan is involved in the Boy Scouts and is currently working towards becoming an Eagle Scout. He is also musically inclined, playing the piano, clarinet, and alto saxophone in his school's concert, marching, and jazz bands. Last May, he performed the piano solo of George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra at the Bushnell Theater. Looking forward, he hopes to apply to Colorado College, University of Vermont and Middlebury, to pursue a degree in political science.
