Co-Founder and Executive Director ryan@weareuplift.com

Ryan was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland 1988. He attended Carrickfergus College and California Pacific College of the Performing Arts where he studied Dance, Voice, Stagecraft, Psychology, Teaching Methods, Music Theory, Production and Media. Ryan was the first person from Ireland ever to have been asked to join the College after auditioning for the world renowned performing arts company ‘The Young Americans’. 

After touring all over Europe, America, UK, and Ireland he decided to come back home to found ‘Uplift Performing Arts’ in 2009. By using the tools of the arts, Ryan strives to make ‘Uplift’ a home for new talent in Northern Ireland to be nurtured and developed as he knows how much of a positive impact performing arts can have on the community and how much it will benefit the youth of our generation. Ryan’s positive and addictive energy has inspired hundreds of young people in Northern Ireland through school workshops and at the Uplift branches. Since Uplift started Ryan has directed countless amounts of productions and was the head production director for Northern Ireland’s first ever Dinner Theatre in 2012. Over the past few years Ryan has spearheaded the international PA workshops with Uplift in England and the USA. 

In 2017 Ryan was contacted by the Young Americans to become a guest director. He went out with the UK & Ireland cast directing and looks forward to doing more in the near future. 

The highlights of Ryan’s life so far have been becoming a Christian and marrying his beautiful wife Amy. He is so proud and privileged to work with Amy every day to affect the young people of Northern Ireland. He has a beautiful daughter and hopes from more children in the future.
