Ryan is a husband, a father, and comes from a background in professional acting and youth leadership. He is thrilled to head up the Jesters team, where he gets to combine these two big passions in his life. Ryan holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Performing Arts and also completed the apprenticeship program at Pacific Theatre in Vancouver. He loves helping youth see their own inherent value, and believes the performing arts is one of the best tools in which to do that. He believes no one is alive by mistake, and fostering the creative sense inside of yourself will help anyone value what they can uniquely offer the world. Ryan is also an avid board gamer and enjoys throwing down the gauntlet to all would-be challengers.

Assistant Program Director
You can volunteer with us!
From our amazing volunteers and parent helpers to staff and financial supporters, there are so many ways to support local youth and our programs for them.
Running our programs takes a team of people in many different roles, using a variety of passions and skills. We would love to chat with you about where you might best fit in.
You can also donate!
We love what we do and we believe that it makes a huge difference in the lives of the children that are able to go through our programs. The reality is that programs like ours need funds to run. From props, makeup, costumes, and paying staff, we can’t operate without the generous support of donors like you. Thank you for taking the time to give.
