From the time I was a small child, my father instilled a single phrase into my education: "Ryan, people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." He wisely ensured that I understand how knowledge only finds fulfillment in serving others.
My passion is taking the best in technology and using it to serve others. I have worn several hats in my career - psychologist, programmer, salesperson, project manager, founder. As such, I have a unique blend of experiences that help me serve the complex real-world needs of others. My professional value boils down to a few simple points:
I'm multi-lingual in business and technology: I can speak geek, marketer, designer, sales. Understanding saves time and frustration.
I love hearing each person's story. Knowing why is often vastly more important than knowing what.
I have Big Ideas. And I recognize that lots of people have Big Ideas- it is Execution that matters.
I run towards fires.
I love making new professional acquaintances. Reach out if you want to talk technology, religion/philosophy or distilling.
