Ryan Michler

Ryan Michler is a husband, father, Iraqi Combat Veteran, and the Founder of Order of Man.

Growing up without a permanent father figure, Ryan was left to learn how to be a man on his own and with the help of a few strong men in his life.

He believes that most, if not all, of the world's biggest problems could be solved if males everywhere learned how to be better husbands, fathers, friends, and leaders. He's on a mission to help all men become the men they were meant to be.
