From the bright lights of The Vegas Strip to the Heart of Central Washington, Ryan is excited to begin his career as a Reporter at KIMA in Yakima.

Originally from Stockton, CA, Ryan moved to Las Vegas at a young age and attended UNLV. He was part of the first class of students to launch Studio G, UNLV's live streaming newscast.

His first taste of television came as the Sports Intern for KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, where he interviewed sports greats like Ray Lewis and Travis Pastrana. He then became a Video Editor for News 3 KSNV, working with both the news and sports departments to help create compelling stories for the Las Vegas Valley.
