After completing my degree in International Politics, I took off to realise my lifelong dream of exploring the natural, cultural and the most exciting corners of the planet. I moved from Toronto to Shanghai, China where my adventures began.
Over the years I transformed myself from an award winning photographer into a producer, television presenter, author and a public speaker. I enhanced my storytelling abilities to make television programs that showed how incredible our world is. I founded Ryan Pyle Productions with the launch of Tough Rides and Extreme Treks, both of which are adventure TV shows that document some of the most epic motorcycle riding (Tough Rides) and trekking and climbing (Extreme Treks) locations around the world. Key Broadcast Partners are: BBC Earth, Discovery Channel, Amazon Prime.
Aside to this, Ryan Pyle Productions is also a full service film and television services company working with Tourism Bureaus and Corporate partners to document, create and share experience based content. I am also a Columnist for the South China Morning Post. Previously I was a regular contributor to some the major international publications, such as Time, Newsweek, Fortune, Forbes, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Spiegel, and the Sunday Times Magazine.
