About the Author

Ryan Moorehead is a creative empath, keenly self-aware, with a wide-ranging assortment of interests from art and culture to business where he has garnered a list of accomplishments in music, entertainment and real estate. An Oakland, California native, former D1 collegiate athlete, and businessman, his life constantly sat at the intersection of promise and conflict: gifted and aspirational yet typecast and misunderstood. His journey into manhood is not an all too uncommon one where challenges and consequences harden a person. Yet consistent faith and love in his life left an indelible mark on him to want to help others persevere in their own walk.

Ryan spends a great deal of time pouring into things he is passionate about, which include personal development, leadership and communication, and family. He is currently raising his two daughters in Greenwich, Connecticut.
