Who am I?

Hi, I’m Ryan.

I’m a creator. I dream of products and bring them to life with code. I enjoy working on personal projects, writing, and capturing the world with a camera.

I’m an adventurer. Explore the world. Try anything. Never stop learning. I spent 14 consecutive months using Airbnb to explore neighborhoods in many cities across North America before settling in NYC. I’ve explored Japan, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, and Italy, and I love connecting with digital nomads and world travelers that help plot my next adventure.

I’m a technologist. I’m a voracious learner and enjoy distributed system design, event-driven programming, and data analysis. Professionally, I’ve led engineering initiatives at Canary, Blue Apron, and Harvest.

I’m an optimizer. I love discovering ways to optimize computation and business performance. My work enabled Canary’s computer vision pipeline to process over 400 million daily videos and saved the company millions of dollars in cloud computing costs.
