About Ryan

Entrepreneur – specializing in social entrepreneurship projects, community engagement, and global innovation. My solid academic background, military, and leadership experience in government relations, community organization, and volunteer work abroad formed the basis of my career.

Recognized with numerous honors for my years in the Armed Forces from Congressmen, Senators and, namely, President Obama, as well as a prestigious community award from the City of Austin and League of Women Voters for my positive impact on the city’s electoral process changes, I have a verifiable history of marked impact and success. As such, I consistently exceed budgetary and productivity goals and I am adept at achieving maximum brand impact and traction with minimal resource expenditure. Professional focal points include veteran’s assistance, fundraising, mentoring, legal representation, campaigning, marketing, communications, leadership, local government, neighborhood planning, crime prevention, international affairs, business development and entrepreneurship. Delivering superior administration on the latter areas of expertise requires utilization of effective communication skills, negotiation skills, as well as business acumen, systems analysis, project management and budget management to support efficiency and maximum returns.

Colleagues describe me as a progressive, driven, down-to-earth, innovation and development expert who can be relied on to offer revolutionary solutions that deliver impactful results with little resources.
