Ryan O’Donnell Bio
Ryan or Ryan O hails from northern Nevada in the grungy, yet surprisingly classy, (and newly renovated) Reno, Nevada. Ryan says he like his climate like I like my data: evolving, uncompromising, and progressive. He has a Master of Science; that is, an M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis, however, his interests have grown to include many others, including entrepreneurship and capturing perspectives and stories through various mediums. These interests and skills have allowed him to work with a lot of great people. Ryan’s started three businesses, numerous active joint venture agreements, a behavioral think-tank, a podcast, a professional development movement, helped organizations that support people with Intellectual Disabilities, to list a few. Currently, he leads product development and distribution for High Sierra Industries as a Learning Systems Development Specialist. Ryan focused outside this role on building a community of thought leaders and doers to create content that increases the transparency of behavior analytic technologies with the hopes of creating a platform that truly saves the world. Other interests are all over, from artificial intelligence and machine learning applications to the theory and philosophy behind Why We Do What We Do (wwdwwdpodcast.com). In my spare time you can find me consuming social media, prepping/climbing a giant mountain, or walking around with my camera in my hand (and, occasionally, all simultaneously). You can connect with he personally on most all social platforms via @TheDailyBA and let him know what drives you to pursue the Behavior Analysis vision.
