As the Events Strategist at Rescue, Ryyn is responsible for the experience design and overseeing the strategy and quality of event experiences for Fresh Empire and This Free Life.

Before Rescue, Ryyn started his career in public health passionately working with under-served populations. From providing parenting classes to teen mothers to finding housing for transitional-aged youth to educating LGBT high school and college students about HIV/AIDS prevention, Ryyn has actively helped various communities to access public services and programs. Ryyn was invited to be a fellow for the Center for Disease Control’s Institute for HIV Prevention Leadership in Atlanta where he worked to increase services for the transgender community. Ryyn also co-authored policies for the LA County Public Health Department that improved the cultural competence of all county service providers including the LAPD, the county jails, and all county hospitals in serving the transgender population.

Seeing an opportunity to make a larger positive impact, Ryyn became a corporate event manger producing events that brought together corporations from around the world and intimately worked with city mayors, ambassadors, consulate generals, and international government departments. With over 7 years in the events industry, Ryyn has assisted major brands like Cirque Du Soleil, Disney, Live Nation and over 500 theaters, venues, and concerts nationwide with their event marketing and ticketing.

In the course of his passionate career in events and public health, Ryyn has received many commendations including an invitation to the White House in 2015 under the Obama Administration and was chosen to be part of a fellowship program by the Philippine Embassy naming him as one of the top 10 Filipino Americans in the United States in 2014.

Ryyn received his BA in Psychology from CSULB and his MBA from Pepperdine University. Favorite food is just anything fried, especially chicken, but he tries to balance it out with a regular workout at the gym. You will most likely catch him at the beach with his husband, JP, and silver labrador retriever, Oliver.
