Ryan McKinley Fraizer

I am a graduate of the University of Georgia, and I hold a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree in Real Estate from the Terry College of Business. During my time in college, I was passionate about UGA HEROs. This is the largest student-run philanthropy in the Southeastern United States, and it is the only organization is Georgia that is dedicated to improving the quality of life of children infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS in Georgia. 

I have since moved to Atlanta and began a career with Live Oak Construction Supply, Inc. My family has owned this business for over 25 years, and it continues to be the number one construction materials distributor in the metro Atlanta area. Day-to-day, I carry out the duties of an Office Manager, but my focus is on the improvement of work flow efficiency.

My partner, Jonathan 'Blake' Ingram, and I took the plunge in September 2011 and bought our very first place together. We live in 12th story condo located in the heart of Midtown with our two miniature long-haired Dachshunds, Willy Wonka and Violet Beauregarde. I have been a vegetarian since January 2010 and continue to fiddle with the idea of being vegan.

This quote by Steve Jobs explains how I live my life, "Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
