Ryan’s experiences in chemical research and development influence the way he approaches teaching and coaching. His first job out of college was serving at an Outback Steakhouse. His second was a “Flavor Technician” in the Sweets division for an international flavor-engineering company where he worked with Flavorists to develop artificial flavors for companies like Yoplait, Coca-Cola, and Diageo. He left that job for his first teaching job.Later in his career, he worked as a research assistant to brother in Golden, CO. There he worked largely on developing solutions for companies to turn waste into profit while reducing environmental impact. He got to see and do so much cool stuff in that job, but most importantly his immersion in the industry gave him a better perspective as to what skills his students really need to compete.
