Christopher Ryan Bio

Born Christopher Ryan Clark, in Plainfield New Jersey in 1984, his family moved to Charlotte, NC when he was four years old. In his teen years he had dreams of playing in the NBA but then realized it wasn’t in God’s plan for him. Growing up in a single family house-hold, his mother could not afford the typical things a teen boy desires. At this young age he learned he would have to acquire those things at his own expense. So at 15 with an already full schedule of going to school and playing sports he got a job at a rug outlet. He didn’t know it at the time but this was large turning point in his life.

He began to find pleasure in having money and being able to provide and purchase those things that were out of reach years before. In high school his love for sports would slowly fade as his love for becoming a business man began to grow. After graduating high school at the age of 18, his mother passed away from cancer. Still not knowing if college was the next step, he moved in with his grandparents. After working for four years at a home respiratory company he found himself working as a bar-back for his uncle at the Omni Hotel. This enabled him to purchase a three-bedroom townhome with the intention of fixing it up to have as a rental property. That is when he realized he wanted to be an entrepreneur but didn’t know where to start. At 22 he began bartending and learned he found joy in meeting new people and the nightlife scene became a major part of his social life. He was then introduced to the business of party promotion by the family of a close friend. For the next six years he both bartended and hosted parties. This enabled him to network and build relationships with people who found the same thrill in partying as he did. He found happiness in seeing those closest to him being in good spirits and having a good time. “It was a time of fellowship for me and my crew and there was a lot of us!” After years of hosting parties in Charlotte he knew that for his ideas and vision to become reality he had to take it to the next level in a more demanding market. “They say greatness comes when you step out of your comfort zone. Believe in yourself, invest in yourself, have faith in God and everything will work in your favor.” This is what led him back to where it all started, New Jersey. He founded Christopher Ryan Events in pursuit of bringing this vision to life.
