  1. – Empowering and encouraging leadership style – Disciplined (wakes up at 4:30am every day to work on his mission at Treehouse) – Ryan is driven and guided by a deep sense of purpose – his WHY Create the Future of Education so I can change as many lives as possible. – Ryan takes every challenge on with a level head and determination. He has the grit to conquer just about anything he sets his mind on – no matter the barriers in his way. – There is a paradigm shift happening in tech – and Ryan is on the front-line as a visionary and pioneer. Eight years ago, Ryan saw a future of EdTech that would would be inclusive, accessible, affordable and effective. In an industry where a Computer Science degree is on the majority of Software Engineering hiring criteria, he opened an online school for people who wished to change their lives via a new path to great tech jobs. He has changed thousands of lives through his work with Treehouse – and that number grows daily. – When Indeed.com released their projection that there will be 1,300,000 new developer jobs in the next 10 years, and only 400,000 will be filled by computer science grads – he knew he needed to act fast – with a laser focus and scalable solution. At Treehouse, he has developed a new talent pipeline to answer this call. In partnership with the Boys and Girls Club, many high-profile companies (such as Nike, InVision, MailChimp and more) are jumping on board the Apprentice model for hiring diverse talent through this pipeline. He is advocating and facilitating a movement for equity, inclusion and diversity in an industry that is still behind the times and has yet to adopt many of these principals.
