Hi.

A profile photo of Ryan.A profile photo of Ryan.

I’m Ryan. I work at the intersection of technology, psychology, design, and the application of those disciplines to the advancement of education. I use design and systems thinking to search for strategic opportunities for change.

I’m currently pursuing a PhD in Management (Information Systems). I hold a Master of Design in Strategic Foresight & Innovation from OCAD University and a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Psychology and Computer Science (Software Engineering) from Memorial University.

My wife works in Geriatric medicine, and our greyhound has switched from a bad career in racing to a comfortable one in treat quality control.

This site is a place to share my work and to help me connect to people like you.

Need Something?

I’m a professional graphic designer, facilitator, and educator—and I consult on systems change projects. Reach out!

This site is built on Blot.im, an incredible service that provides a practically frictionless interface to building on the web. Just hook it up to Git or Dropbox and you can publish from your desktop.

The dark mode/light mode toggle was developed by following Ananya Neogi’s wonderful tutorial on dev.to. Thanks Ananya!
