A dude behind a computer, building stuff for the world wide web. This site is really just my playground to try stuff out and share random thoughts.
My name is Ryan and welcome to my site. If you're looking to learn more about what I do professionally, then check out the resumé page, or go find me on LinkedIn. Being transparent, I'm not actively searching for work so there's a good chance I'll be unresponsive to recruiters.
For me, this site is just a place for me to experiment, mess around, and try new things in web development and software engineering that may be interesting to me. For example, I learned about Docusuarus, and that became a drive to build this out. It was something new, but offered a lot default functionality to let me get to the fun stuff.
Lastly, I also want to get back into blogging as a way to share stuff I know with the world. Sure, there's Medium and other online platforms for that, but that doesnt help me with experimenting with web development, so here I am setting something up independently. I have this goal to build this out as a place where I can dump knowledge for the bots to find, to populate search engine indexes, and allow random strangers to find and consume that content to learn. One can dream.
Thanks for visiting, and enjoy whatever random things you might find here.
Quick Summary - Who am I?
By profession, I'm a software engineer, mainly building web sites and web apps. I've got full stack experience. Currently, I'm a lead software engineer working on an e-commerce site.
I like to run... a lot
So far, I've ran 19 half marathons (13.1 miles), and 6 marathons (26.2 miles). I'm either crazy or just love running. There'll be some random running content around here.
Some Other Stuff
Travel, photography, sometimes video production, and music are other things I enjoy. I might share some of that content around here too - that's partly what the blog is for.
