Before working in the health care technology sector, Ryan worked in Higher Education, serving as the Lead Web Developer at the University of Portland.

One of Ryan's greatest passions is teaching and training coding and other technology to new learners. He volunteered for several years in Portland schools to teach code and technology skills to kids.
