When Ryan joined us in 2007, the West Coast Eagles lost a passionate – some would say rabid – supporter to the eastern states. But having witnessed the harrowing emotional rollercoaster that Ryan rides throughout every football season, we know that his passion remains undiminished by the tyranny of distance.
After graduating from medicine, Ryan began psychiatric training and subsequently worked in psychiatric hospitals in Perth and London. Having already disappointed his paediatrician father with his choice of specialisation, he then took it a step further and uttered the words every parent dreads: ‘I want to be a writer’.
Always interested in words, Ryan completed a Graduate Certificate in Professional Writing and Presentation and worked as a freelance medical writer before joining our team. Since then, he has added a Master of Marketing to his qualifications – and intends never to study anything, ever, again.
