Ryan was working as carpenter when he developed carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands and was forced to down tools. His desire to keep in the building industry saw him working as a residential scheduler; he then moved into estimating and finally became financial manager for a British refurbishment company. This experience awakened a dream to become an in dependent master builder and Savvy Construction was born in 2009. The company specialises in high-end new builds, renovations, restorations and external works projects. Fine attention to detail and excellent customer service has earned Savvy a string of industry awards.
In 2012, Ryan travelled to the disaster ravaged Philippines to oversee rebuilding and repair projects. He also supports the Mercy Day Care Centre, Autism Association and Hillarys Primary School.
