Hey! My name is Ryan and I am a dad, a traveler, an entrepreneur and a performer (a long time ago). I performed onboard Royal Caribbean Cruiselines as a singer and dancer in the revue shows. I was fortunate enough to travel LITERALLY around the world over my 3 years on ships and had amazing experiences that I couldn't have packed into a lifetime of traveling had I not been "working" at the same time.
Needless to say, traveling became a bit of an obsession and since leaving cruiseships 10 years ago, I've continued to travel to new places as well as revisiting some favorites from the cruising days.
Originally I'm from LA but have lived in NY for 10 years now trading one show biz city for another. I have stopped performing but have remained on the business side of show business as a producer and founder of 2 companies tailored to performers in the Entertainment industry.
I love to look for interesting places to stay during my travels and much prefer the comfort, space, uniqueness and warmth of someone's home to an impersonal and more expensive hotel. It feels like I'm experiencing the place I visit the way the locals do.
I became a dad to an amazing baby boy in Jan, 2012 so trips to places like Australia, Africa, Europe and Hawaii are gonna be on the back burner for a while but I LOVE living in New York City and hope to help make other people's vacations to this amazing place as special as the one's I've experienced in the past.
Hope I can help make your vacation memorable!
