Ryan’s family and faith are his highest priorities, and his dedication to both are the foundations of his determination to serve the El Paso community.

Ryan is committed to fiscal discipline and the principles of limited government. He believes that the citizens of El Paso should keep as much of their earnings as possible, and that the County should limit itself to what it is required to provide under the law. People should be free to exercise their rights with minimal government interference and thrive as free individuals.

Ryan graduated high school in Farwell, Michigan, and joined the Army in 2001. For more than two decades, he served on installations across the nation and has numerous deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and the Persian Gulf. Having retired from active service, he now works in a civilian capacity as a Network Integration Planner at Fort Bliss, supporting our Service Members and their mission.

He earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology Management and a Master of Science in Leadership from Trident University International while serving on active duty, graduating Summa Cum Laude from both programs.

Ryan currently serves as the Executive Director for Manna Church El Paso, is active in outreach initiatives throughout the County, and helps coach his eldest son’s baseball team. In 2023, he was nominated to serve on the City of El Paso’s Ethics Review Commission and the Bond Overview Advisory Committee and was unanimously appointed to both by the City Council.

Ryan has the background and experience to serve Precinct 1 and will work to earn your vote!
