Where are you from?
I was born and raised in West Fargo, North Dakota.
Tell us a little bit about you.
I am an avid sports fan, mainly the Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Vikings. My name is pronounced Ryan even though it looks different. I got my degree from the University of North Dakota. I have one dog and two cats.
If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?
Pretty easy answer answer and that is Ryan Reynolds. Because we are both good looking, funny, and have a laid back personality.
What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
I like to play video games, mostly Apex, Overwatch, and Call of Duty. I also like to play golf and watch movies.
What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
In 2016, I accidentally started an oil fire in my apartment and ended up burning almost 15% of my skin. I had to get airlifted to St. Paul.
What part of your position provides the most value?
I am excited to learn more about local companies that I have never heard of and work with them to grow their business.
Tell us about your experience.
I honestly don’t have a ton of experience in this position. I had an internship at a local radio station working events as well as sales and on-air broadcasting. After college, I moved back home and became a team lead at Target. The past six months I was the marketing manager for a local insurance company.
What part of your job do you believe makes the most impact?
I want to help companies grow and expand in markets that they did not think was possible.
Why does our community matter to you?
I want to learn more about the community and what all Fargo has to offer. Fargo is a growing community and is a great place for any family. I want people to realize that Fargo is truly a wonderful place to call home.
