Ryan's Introduction

I love to create & I'm passionate about technology.

After graduating from UC Berkeley with a BA in Legal Studies, I began my career as a copywriter and content manager for a legal marketing startup.

Following the sale of that property, I was promoted to product manager & oversaw a team that launched online startups in niche industries.

I then jumped at the challenge of overhauling the entire IT operations of a growing manufacturer with 5 branch locations.

I am driven to learn continually. In my spare time I build servers, learn new programming languages, travel & climb mountains. Please contact me with any questions.
