After spending most of his career working alongside software developers, Ryan is a strong supporter of Agile Development, the teamwork mentality that it builds among team members, and the tangible product results it delivers.

Ryan's previous experience includes: 

  • Gentex Corporation (Software Product Engineer)
  • Whirlpool Corporation (System Engineer)
  • Visteon Corporation (Senior Project Engineer)
  • Johnson Controls (Systems Integration/Product Engineer)

He also holds a BS in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Central Michigan University and an MS in Computer Information Systems from Grand Valley State University.

Ryan also loves all sorts of nerdy hobbies — he’s been the Dungeon Master for his local Dungeons & Dragons group for over 5 years, and is a huge fan of anything Marvel, sci-fi, or fantasy.
