Ryan is a passionate husband, father, entrepreneur, angel investor, mentor, and creative thinker. Ryan has had a lifelong love of tech. He first learned how to program at 11, developed his first site at 13 and started his first internet business at the age of 16.

Prior to Base, Ryan was the CEO and co-founder of AppStores.com, which was acquired by InMobi (one of the largest mobile advertising companies). AppStores.com was a white label app store platform that gives publishers the tools to run their own micro app stores.

Before Facebook, Ryan co-founded Ping.fm (acquired by Seesmic), a service that allows users to post across multiple social networks at once.
