Ryan Leonhardt started his professional career in the furniture, business. At the age of 24 he started his first retail mattress stores. After finding that it was much more fun to work with his brother Travis, they finally teamed up and started “My Mattress” in 2010!
That was about the same time he started performing on the stage again. Part of the reason that “LionHeart Hall” is special to him is that art can break down walls, or expose that sometimes walls don’t exist.
His deepest hope is that LionHeart Hall will be used for performances, receptions and recitals where a lot of walls break down, and a lot of laughter is heard!
Travis began a very successful career in the piano industry, and for 15 years he was surrounded by music and able to interact with some of the best musicians in the world! In 2010, wanting to get closer to family, he founded “My Mattress“ with his brother, Ryan. Since then, they have been in many stage performances together, and have been featured vocalists in performances throughout Utah.
He is the mastermind behind the construction of LionHeart Hall, and has taken great pride in taking it from demolition to the finished product it is today.
