Jesus captivated Ryan at a Christian summer camp during the summer of 2014, where he experienced a radically different kind of loving community for the first time. Since then, Ryan has been pursuing a deeper relationship with God, and has been excited about sharing the love of Christ with others. He graduated in 2022 from the University of Illinois at Chicago where he studied computer science. He served as a student leader with Cru at UIC, and is now back on campus as a Fellow with the Chicago Campus Initiative. In his spare time, Ryan enjoys video games, board games, a cup of joe with good company, spending time with those he loves, and a mean jam session with whoever’s willing!
