Hello! My name is Ryan Meier. I am an open source web developer. I’m also an avid runner and participate in many local races of the Chicago suburbs.


I am a Software Engineer at WPEngine.  I had also spent many-a-year as a GIS developer working with ArcGIS Server and ASP.NET.


Over the last few years I have grown frustrated with WordPress and wanted to try focus on more object-oriented php frameworks as an investment in my career. This has lead me to start learning Laravel and a better understanding for programming and open sources tools.


Running is my other passion. I started running during my last year of college to deal with the stress of my classes. Ten years later and I am still running frequently and occasionally running in local races.


You can find me on twitter or github.
