About Me:

Sports are a central part of my life, and a highlight was playing for the University of Hawaii men’s volleyball team, Class of ‘04.

Volleyball has brought friends, contacts and opportunities into my life, and I still maintain a strong connection to the sport, as a coach. I also work as a FedEx handler and enjoy the outdoor, physical work it entails.



Alan Wong’s. Maybe I’m biased ‘cause I used to work there, but I still think the food is the best.

Place to shop

Banana Republic

Recording artist

Frank Sinatra

Inspiration My parents, Russell and Thalia, ‘cause they are still together after 28-plus years and have always supplied us with everything we ever needed to succeed in life.

Ryan’s Favorite Quote/Advice:

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me.’ “

-Erma Bombeck

What’s up for me in 2007

Just more of the same ... coaching volleyball and working while looking for what new adventure life will bring me. I’m coaching the 18’s boys club team for Outrigger Canoe Club and will be the varsity boys coach at University High School.
