Ryan grew up embracing technology. He relished the innovations which led to the growth of the Internet, and he stepped into the online marketing arena straight out of high school. This is when he became the co-owner of a sports marketing firm, which focused on creating websites for high school sports programs. While he learned a great deal from this hands-on experience, at one point, he chose to return to the classroom for more in-depth instruction. He entered West Virginia University, where he studied business marketing.
