About Ryan

I’m a software developer in Austin, TX, long time WP enthusiast, and looking for my next adventure! I love to mentor new developers and help them overcome the hurdles I just went through. The craft is my passion.

I enjoy a nice glass of silver tequila, playing guitar, leaving the windows open all night, and genuinely love people. Dislikes: pants. Down with those, right?! Hah. I’m hilarious.

I used to have an epic beard, then I cut it off.

After! =D

I have two adorable little gentlemen named Tako and Alex. They’re my little road warriors and do all of my editing. Together we slay some serious netflix.

These gentlemen know how to party
