Hi there!

My name is Ryan, and I work at iFixit as a Pathfinder.

I moved to San Luis Obispo from Southern California in October 2011 after getting the job at iFixit. I love the area, the people, and the atmosphere.

I earned my Associates degree in Hospitality, Travel, and Tourism in 2011 from the University of Phoenix.
