Ryan is a Senior Operations Engineer at Etsy.  He loves to solve puzzles, play with his kids' Legos, and learn new things.  Like the harmonica.

    Thanks to the group for inviting me to speak and all those that attended. I got some really great feedback from several folks after the presentation. The best part is the active engagement from the audience!
