CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER
Ryan has over 15 years of live, broadcast, and experiential event experience. Providing him with a comprehensive understanding of events and their various challenges, Ryan’s career includes extensive work with The Obama White House, a variety of A list musical and comedic talent, and numerous presidential, senatorial, congressional, and gubernatorial campaigns.
Ryan’s passion was evident early on when he started his first company at age 14. Rather than take an after school job, he started an age appropriate entertainment company, ultimately servicing more than 250 proms, homecomings, and weddings (luckily Mom was willing to drive until he got his license!)
Since then, Ryan has held various positions throughout the event, political, and entertainment spaces. While not working on events, Ryan has spent time on other ventures - owning a party bus company that runs on waste veggie oil as well as creating, promoting, and selling a website that helped you find the cheapest place nearby to buy your favorite beer.
Ryan currently resides in Washington, DC, often traveling back to his native Michigan to visit family and friends.
