Hi, I'm Ryan.

I am currently focused on building technology at Econest, to source, purchase, and retrofit energy inefficient properties, then let as eco-friendly properties.

Formerly, I held lead and executive product roles at Mozilla, Simple (acquired), Thunderhead (acquired), CartHook (acquired), and Expect.

I consulted with product management teams in enterprise and growth-stage organizations to create a culture that values customer outcomes over feature outputs. Previous clients included REI, IHG, BP, Adidas, MURAL, and others.

I've built a few startups too — I founded the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer training platform Cram Session (acquired), co-founded the location-based service Shizzow, and founded the HIPAA-compliant food and symptom journal Tummy.

For my side project, I write about and photograph making sausage and bacon from scratch at Meat Club.

I live just outside of London with my wife and daughter — they're the bee's knees. I grew up in Ohio, and I spent an amazing 15 years in Portland, Oregon.

You may find me on Bluesky, Mastadon, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
