Ryan has been an entrepreneur since age 9 when he sold custom Christmas cards to practically every family in the church. His childhood dream to own his own business was realized at the age of 22, while he was in graduate school. After 30 years of not drinking any kind of soda, Ryan finally partook of the greatness of the Dublin Dr. Pepper and now considers himself a fan. He always has gum in his pocket and isn't one for conversation until after he's had his morning coffee. You can follow Ryan on Twitter @zerway, but you probably should know that he never really tweets.
