Ryan studied architectural technology at Northumbria University in 2005 after spending two years in the industry. He gained experience working on commercial, education, manufacturing and residential projects before joining Ryder in 2011. Ryan works on projects at the technical design stage, working closely with other technical staff and consultants and has been involved with various new build and refurbishment projects. Outside of architecture, Ryan enjoys listening to live music and playing football - but supporting Newcastle United a little less so.
