Ryan comes to AMAZEworks with a strong background in sales and management. After nearly ten years in the automotive and mechanical fields, Ryan chose to join AMAZEworks as a passion project, assisting in sales, program development, and day-to-day operations of AMAZEworks. He has witnessed first-hand the negative effects of bullying in his own youth and in the lives of his three stepchildren. As a transgender man, Ryan has mentored several people through their transitions and has presented workshops on gender identity, navigating relationships through transition, and self-acceptance and self-love to schools and transgender support groups. Through his work at AMAZEworks, he hopes to build a brighter future for our classrooms and our world. When Ryan is not working, he and his wife enjoy time with their children and two rescue dogs, creating music, playing softball, and being outdoors.
