Ryan is a life-long resident of the Carolinas. Born and raised in Florence, SC, he remained in Florence for college where he studied at Francis Marion University and received a BS in Political Science and Criminal Justice.
After graduation, Ryan began his professional career with ADP, which ultimately led to a career in software and product development. Ryan relocated to Charlotte, NC in 2014, where he continued to pursuit his career in software and product development with Bank of America. His professional experience has created a passion for understanding complex markets and thinking “outside of the box” when approaching problems and creating solutions.
Having amassed 5 years of software and product development experience in the technology industry, Ryan was interested in expanding his professional portfolio and taking on a new challenge. With the innate ability to easily relate to others, passion for helping others achieve their goals, and interest in investment strategies, real estate seemed like a natural fit. Ryan joined Costello REI and The Mac Group in the Summer of 2018.
In his spare time, Ryan enjoys going on walks and hikes with his dog Tilly, playing drums, skiing, attending concerts, and sporting events. He also enjoys being a foodie for the Charlotte area and has a reputation of making excellent restaurant recommendations.
