Ryan is a Maine native with a deep appreciation and love for the natural world. Having served 8 years in the Marine Corps Infantry from 2003-2011, Ryan found all the guidance he needed using nature as a healing tool. It began in the Spring of 2012 with a 2,200 mile thru-hike along the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. Following his 6 month journey up the East coast, Ryan expanded his new found passions through many other expeditions and an immersive education in wilderness living and guiding. His experiences range from all types of geographical locations and climates. Each with its own unique set of challenges and continually testing his physical, mental and spiritual self.

Ryan lives on his 42 acres off of the Appalachian Trail in the Southwestern Mountains of Maine. Pursuing his passion for guiding and inspiring others towards a deeper, more meaningful connection with nature, he created "The Human-Nature Hostel and Wilderness Guide Service." Primitive survival skills, backpacking, canoeing, and learning to live within the balance of the natural world is the focus of his programs.
