Hello! My name is Ryan, and I am studying Software Engineering at the University of Waterloo. I've been in love with technology since I was a child and have been lucky enough to pursue my passion as a software developer.
I am an easy-going individual and am always down to hang out and chat - whether it's online over a video game or in the ski chalet over a beer. Over the years, I have proved my ability to strive in various work environments. With over 3 years of snowboard instructing experience and 6+ years of programming experience, I have developed a vast skillset - both technical and interpersonal.
I love learning new things, meeting new people, and I am always ready for a challenge!

These experiences have allowed me to develop both technical and interpersonal skills which both prove to be very effective in the work place.
