Once upon a time, Ryland worked as a sports journalist for a national sports television network – less glamorous than it sounds – requiring a lot of coffee and late nights analyzing ‘footy’ matches across the globe, though it wouldn’t be so bad if it was his beloved Crystal Palace club in the English Premier League. Fast forward more than a decade later and Ryland is now an experienced litigator in defending insurance claims arising from tort actions and accident benefits disputes, including complicated catastrophic impairment claims, WSIAT disputes, loss transfer and priority disputes. 

In his spare time, Ryland enjoys watching 60 Minutes, attending poorly attended concerts and playing the guitar until his wife tells (begs) him to stop. Ryland also has a passion for travelling and has had the opportunity to travel to many countries including Iceland, South Africa and Japan.
