Ryan is the Head of Library Technology at Seattle Pacific University where he supports the educational technology needs of students, faculty, and staff. He oversees the Library Tech Desk, which provides technology tools, assistance, and space for students to discover, create, and share.
A Pacific Northwest native, he began his educational technology career at Trinity Lutheran College. Just prior to SPU, he survived multiple harsh winters in Minneapolis and worked at Augsburg College as the Teaching and Learning Spaces Liaison. Ryan is in his 6th year working at SPU. In 2016, he earned a M.Ed. in Digital Education Leadership Seattle Pacific University and also earned a Graduate Certificate in Christian Studies from Seattle Pacific Seminary.
Ryan, who regularly queues for new Apple products, enjoys discussing the intersection of technological innovation and theological reflection over a good cup of coffee. He is passionate about helping others live fully and express their identity well in both analog and digital spaces. This summer, Ryan and his wife welcomed their first child, Theodore, into the world. This new adventure has Ryan scoping his backyard for the perfect tree fort location amidst incoherent baby conversations and diapers changes.

Most posts are part of a cumulative bPortfolio project for the M.Ed. program. However, expect to see posts related to his role supporting the technological needs of the university and musings about education, technology and theology.
