What Ryan likes best about live performances:
“There is nothing quite like a live performance. It is an instance in life that can never be duplicated. The emotion and sensations you get from participating in a great performance stay with you for a lifetime. I have always wanted to be one of those involved in the creation of these events, as they really bring people together to simply have fun.”
