My name is Ryan and I live in Port Washington, NY all of my life. Life is boring here. Iíve reached a point where I find it extremely hard to even deal with school and some of the B.S. that comes with it. The only thing that seems to keep me sane is my friends, the support of my family, my guitar, and my snowboard. Give me these things in life and I will be happy. I was born at LIJ Hospital and Iíve lived in Port my whole life. My mother is a V.P. at a hospital in the city while my father is a teacher who also runs his own business. I also have a brother who is 9 years older, an actor, and lives in queens. My family owns a house about 5 hours away in the Adirondacks. We bought the house in 1989 and I began learning how to ski that same year. I eventually learned to snowboard and Iíve been doing it for about 6 to 7 years. Snowboarding is my favorite thing to do. It helps me forget about everything that might be happening in my life. I feel like my head is just clear when Iím on the slopes. Other than that, Iíve played guitar for 4 and something years. Iím in a band and we will be recording soon, (hopefully). Music is my biggest interest. Iíve always loved music and it has shaped the way I am and act today. I plan to go to college. I plan to be a musician, or work in the music industry when I am older. It is the only thing I can see myself doing. No 9 to 5 job for me.
