Hey, I’m Ryan.

I’ve been a software engineer for over 15 years. I love creating things and seeing them enjoyed.

Here, you’ll find me writing about my side projects and the day-to-day of being a developer.

These days I spend most of my time with Rails and its typical supporting cast, but my background includes a few past lives working with .NET, Java, and iOS.

I’ve worked in teams large and small, much preferring the latter. I love the process of shipping a product with a small, close-knit team. In 2019, I joined an amazing company doing just that: ConvertKit.

Feel free to reach out with your questions! I occasionally work with or mentor people on their projects.
