Ryan grew up in his hometown with his older brother Kyle. To relate to his ancestry, Ryan competed in judo during his early years, and has obtained a black belt. Once in Waiakea High School, Ryan started wrestling for the school team; he matriculated in 2008.

Even while in high school, Ryan started his YouTube channel, and with his friend, Sean Fujiyoshi, began uploading videos of the two lip-syncing to popular songs of the time. In no time the two became an internet sensation, and began incorporating new ideas into their videos. Unfortunately, the two got into a controversy over copyright violations in late 2008, so in January 2009, nigahiga channel was suspended, and many of the videos were removed. He managed to recover his channel, but had problems with his most popular videos “How to be Gangster”, and “How to be Emo”, as they were on and off the network several times before they were back online for good in early 2012. He moved to Las Vegas in 2010, where he studied nuclear medicine at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and since then has worked with other popular YouTubers, while also started a company – Ryan Higa Production Company – and still works with Sean, who is mainly responsible in creating content for the channel. Ryan’s channel is now the 21st most subscribed channel on YouTube, with more than 20 million subscribers, while his videos have been viewed more than 3.5 billion times, which has added a considerable amount to his net worth.

Ryan has also written, directed and produced several films, including “Ryan and Sean’s Not So Excellent Adventure” (2008), in which Richard Van Vleet was credited as producer and director, then “Ninja Melk”, a short film released in 2009, and “Agents of Secret Stuff” (2010), the success of which also contributed to his net worth.

When it comes to his personal life, Ryan is still single, though in the past he dated fellow YouTuber Tarynn Nago from 2006 until 2010, while in 2010 he was in a relationship with internet personality Andrea Thi. He currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.
