Hi, I'm Ryan Snyder.

I am a food enthusiast and web developer who lives in Portland, Oregon.

I founded Foodgeeks, which is a recipe site that is in the process of becoming a food data service. It will feature apps that help people who suffer from gastrointestinal disorders and food allergies.

For kicks, I write about charcuterie for Meat Club and wine on Winegeeks.

I rarely blog, but when I do it's about miscellaneous food-related topics, like the clean gut diet or Turkish coffee. I also occasionally post videos about the origins of food.

Formerly, I worked for Thunderhead, Simple, Mozilla, was a co-founder of the location-based service Shizzow (failed), and was the founder of the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer training platform Cram Session (acquired).

I graduated from The Ohio State University with Bachelors' degrees in English and Italian. For my senior project, I translated Giovanni Pascoli's poems to English.

You may find me on Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and LinkedIn.

My previous and non-food writing can be found on Scribd and my retired blog.
