Ryan is a designer, tradesman and businessman with decades of professional industry experience. A former art and design student at the Kalgoorlie Regional Tafe, Ryan started his vibrant career with brickwork, tiling, plumbing, carpentry, and concreting before transitioning into the composite industry and playing a pivotal role in the production of the Eagle 150B with ‘Eagle Aircraft’ in Henderson WA.

With a successful career and a loving family providing a solid foundation, Ryan embarked on his entrepreneurial journey in 2010 with ‘Integrity Fibreglass’. This leap of faith was both challenging and rewarding as Ryan continued to push himself and developed expertise in the areas of business and people management, bookkeeping, HR and payroll.  Not one to stagnate, he undertook formal qualifications in Computer Aided Design (CAD) to upgrade his processes to computerized plans.

Ryan loves the best of both worlds so in 2019 he joined forces with his amazing life partner Bridie as a Director at Tradeskola and is hands on in the end to end processing of client work. At the same time, he launched ‘Perth Fibreglass Repairs’ allowing him to escape from the office to the yard, keep up his industry skills and build his client base.
