Chief Steward - Ryan Bergstrom, 28
Language spoken: English

Ryan grew up on the shores of one of the world´s largest lakes, Lake Michigan. He has grown accustom to feeling most at home on or by the water. He has lived on the coast on the Pacific Ocean in California, Atlantic Ocean in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Florida; and has also lived in the South of France, in the Mediterranean. Sailing with his family as a child was his first brush with yachting, however living in Florida and being surrounded by superyachts convinced him to make the switch from land-based hospitality to yachting. Before yachting, Ryan curated an art gallery (whilst studying developmental psychology in Boston), has run service and hospitality at fine dining events around the world. Prior to MY Pura Vida he has worked on a variety of yachts from 24-116m in length including been sole stew on MY Enterprise & SY Midori and sole stew/chef onboard MY Match.
Being one of seven siblings, Ryan is great at helping take care of guests of all ages and loves helping guests to enjoy the fantastic array of watersports toys which are available on MY Pura Vida. When Ryan is not working, you will find him on the beach with friends, sailing or practicing yoga.

Her position as Mate perfectly combines her array of skills, knowledge and passion for people, giving guests a truly special experience.
