Ryan joined the FWBG | BRIT team in May 2022 as the Volunteer Services Manager. In 2015, Ryan graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and in 2021 he finished his Master’s Degree in Museum Studies from Harvard University: Extension School. He has worked in non-profits and museums most of his career with roles ranging from informal educator to visitor services and finally working with volunteers. After settling into the volunteer world, Ryan has helped create engaging opportunities and brainstorm ways to foster a welcoming environment for every volunteer he has worked with. Outside of work you can find Ryan trying his hardest at rock climbing and mountain biking. He also likes to reward himself with any fancy electronics he can get his hands on.
