O’CONNOR, RYAN – Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Ryan has had a love for the outdoors since a young age. After completing CEGEP in Montreal, he moved to the Madawaska Valley where he now manages a whitewater canoe and kayak school at Paddler Co-op in Palmer Rapids, ON. Surrounded by whitewater and wilderness, he has honed his skills as a whitewater instructor, guide, mentor and photographer. When Ryan isn’t instructing, he spends his time exploring with his kayak and camera from the Yukon to Labrador, Africa to Mexico, eagerly awaiting what lies beyond the next bend.
