Little is known about Ryan's history. During his freshmen year of high school, Ryan was on the swim team in his school and was very successful. He went to state in the 500 freestyle in 2005. A few months later, Ryan was sent to the hospital due to severe headaches, high blood pressure, and fatigue that made walking difficult. After rehab and strengthening muscles, Ryan became ill and was sent back to the hospital. Later that year, Ryan was diagnosed with an unknown neuromuscular disorder and began using a wheelchair to get around due to his inability to walk. He was also required to use a feeding tube due to decline in his health. Since then, he has moved on to producing YouTube videos and helping other gamers.
