A northwest native, Ryan grew up in and around the Seattle area. He attended the University of Washington, where he began fostering his interest in investments and personal finance and earned a B.S. in Business. Before graduation, he began working at a financial planning firm in Seattle where his passion for the business – and collaboration with Graham – developed. As Ryan and Graham’s views on how to develop a client centered practice converged, it made sense for them to formalize their partnership and philosophy through the formation of Williams Palmer in 2002.
Today, Ryan lives in Newcastle with his wife Tina and two young children, Jack and Kate. When not in the office, Ryan enjoys golf, curling (yes, the kind with the brooms) and Husky football games.
