Ryan joined Abl to help the millions of people underserved by our present education system. Reflecting on his own unorthodox path through college made him realize what a significant impact environment can have on student outcomes. As a result, he is passionate about partnering with schools to design environments that encourage all types of students to discover those unique paths. Before joining Abl, Ryan was an early employee at Yammer, where he worked with Adam on the engineering leadership team. He lives in San Francisco with his wife, daughter, and dog.
