Why they got involved in Leadership Portland:
I've put down roots in Portland with my family and I'm eager to learn as much as I can about the city, what makes it work best, and how it can be improved.

Why it’s important:
Understanding the issues facing our community is essential to becoming a leader. By becoming a leader, both personally and professionally, I will be in the best position to drive change and improvement around those community issues.

Why Ryan loves the Portland region:
My favorite thing about Portland might be the networks of trails and unmaintained "roads" throughout the city. These seemingly secret paths in the middle of urban neighborhoods have been wonderful to explore with my family and feel uniquely Portland.

Fun Fact:
I'm an avid fantasy baseball player, including in one ongoing, evolving league started with law school friends 15 years ago.
