Ryan is a career coach and branding strategist with over 10 years of experience in the software and biotechnology industries. He has facilitated workshops for the SBA and aspiring CXOs, and delivered customized training that resulted in five- to seven-figure sales to Johnson & Johnson, Monsanto, and Walter Reed. Ryan has given successful presentations to Ask.com, Colliers International, Kragens, and others. In a case study, he sold 1,000+ units of an eco-friendly product exclusively through social network media, including Google AdWords, Facebook ads, and YouTube.

As a product strategist for a user interface (UX) design firm, Ryan performed incisive market research, such as identifying a Facebook App as an M&A target that was eventually acquired by Warner Bros. Recognized for his creativity and communication skills, he employs an empathetic style and enjoys working in a multicultural environment. Ryan is a certified 360° Reach Personal Brand Analyst and was featured on a national TV news broadcast giving advice on career transition in challenging economic times.

His career had a novel start as a student working on his advisor’s secret project to create new “letters” for the DNA code. Continuing at UCSF, UC Berkeley, and the USDA, Ryan discovered his passion for distilling complex data to their essential concepts. He utilized those analytical abilities to create customer-focused documentation for tech companies, such as Varian, Hitachi, and HP.

" [CEO Personal Branding workshop]...hit it out of the park! The attendees learned how to make themselves stand out in the workplace and be remembered for future promotions. Ryan was polished, professional and engaging. In addition, he was easy to work with. What more could anyone want?" -- Michael Lee, former Dean JFK Biz School, Nat'l Speakers Assoc.
