Born and raised in St.Albert, Ryan moved to Whistler, B.C. shortly after high school where his culinary career began in the same place so many chefs’ do, the dish pit.
While in Whistler, Ryan experienced working in both the back and front of house at various restaurants before returning home to Edmonton to begin his apprenticeship and schooling.
Back in Edmonton, Ryan worked at local mainstays such as Il Pasticcio, The Sugarbowl, and Sage at the River Cree. After completing his apprenticeship, he took on a role at the venerable Jack's Grill where he stayed for 3 years before moving on to Bar Bricco. Ryan opened Bündok in January of 2017 and looks forward to serving his guests for years to come.
