Ryan's a project manager at Synapse, working with teams of awesome and brilliant engineers to make magic happen.
Ryan migrated from Philadelphia to Seattle to enjoy the active and healthy lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest and be surrounded by water and mountains. Before the trek across the country (and working at Synapse), Ryan was a chemical engineer who designed biochemical processes for "next generation" biofuels from corn cobs, corn stover, and sugar cane.
He enjoys pretty much any combination of the following: building and riding mountain bikes, rock climbing, trail running, hiking and backpacking, road trips, (mediocre) woodworking, reading and spending time with his super-cool girlfriend Danielle and super-cool dog Dakota. He also enjoys good beer too, but usually not in combination with most of the above list.
This bio was his first attempt at writing in the third person.
An Israeli inventor has created what might be the first ever commercially-sold cardboard bicycle.
The prototype is called the ERB and at just $9 to produce, it could bring simple, green transportation to the masses at a fraction of the typical cost.
