Hi. I am Ryan.

I am a software architect, engineer, web developer, consultant, podcaster, and technology enthusiast.

For over a decade, I have followed emerging technologies and trends and written code for fun and profit. I graduated from the University of Minnesota — Twin Cities with a Bachelors of Computer Science, with a focus on software engineering, systems and compilers. While at the U of M, I founded my podcasting network, and since then we have recorded more than 1300 episodes. Now I work as a software architect, engineer and consultant and love my work.
