Program Development Manager
Ryan has academic backgrounds weaving through biology and theology and vocational backgrounds weaving through education and agriculture. He enjoys connecting individuals of all ages to the intricacy, beauty, fragility and resilience of God’s creation—especially through the agricultural (& theological) act of eating. Ryan brings 15+ years of farming experience and 6+ years of educational experience to A Rocha’s revenue generating and educational programs.
Ryan shares life with his lovely wife Jessica and their two wonderful daughters, Salel and Brook. They live onsite at Brooksdale in community with other A Rocha staff and interns, a wonderful embodiment of grace given and grace received. When not lost in natural history, or lost in Salel and Brook’s imagination, Ryan may be found lost in a good book.
