He and his wife Rene currently reside in Concord, North Carolina with daughter Ava (14) and son Aiden (10). They spend their summers fishing and boating on Lake Norman, playing softball, and rehabbing their home. Ryan joined ESG in the summer of 2017. Ryan has been in the construction field since 2001 and became interested in building science in 2009 after attending a HERS Rater training course and realizing how poorly homes were being built at the time. Ryan’s experience as a construction supervisor and small business owner has given him a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities in the marketplace.
