Throughout the years, Ryan has built a strong, working knowledge of military operations and how the equipment used in these operations can determine the outcome of an engagement.
As the Managing Director of Beowulf Defense and Security, Ryan serves as the principle representative of the firms ideology and mission statement. As such, Ryan will use a creative vision and strategy to modify, implement, and regulate changes that are aimed towards innovating newer and unique services for Beowulf's clients.
Raised in Germantown, Maryland, Ryan began his career at a young age, spurred by the hyperactive defense and political cultures of the Washington D.C. metro area. Today, with more than six years of experience as a defense consultant and analyst, Ryan has been called upon to provide an expert opinion on a number of issues, such as sea power, power projection, operations other than war, civil and defense aerospace, the operations of Private Military Companies, and specifically, the possibility of a No-Fly-Zone over the Darfur region of Sudan. Ryan has been awarded for exemplary work in the preservation of aerospace history, and has been recognized as an expert advisor in the fields of Military Aviation & Sea Power by the International Affairs Committee of the State of Hawaii's House of Representatives.
