About Ryan

I'm a web engineer at Expedia who specializes in JavaScript on both ends. I've taught others how to code at the University of Washington and Seattle Central College. Currently, I'm teaching online with Pluralsight and speaking at conferences.

After studying in Japan, I started a record label to distribute and release Japanese underground music. With my post-screamo band Cease Upon The Capitol, I released several albums and toured the world.

I love playing video games, especially visual novels & JRPGs. My favorite games are Earthbound, Mirror's Edge, and Nier. Recently, I created a JavaScript framework for building visual novels in the browser over a weekend for the Ludum Dare game jam.

Thanks for stopping by!
