Ryan Davies (Street Articles Author)

Ryan has worked in the IT industry for the past 11 years but feels like he's had 20 years worth of experience. From a Systems Admin, to an "Analyst", to Senior Consultant and now....without title, he's had exposure and success to most areas within the IT industry. He enjoys technology outside of his career and is always trying to learn how things work. He then uses that knowledge to help others and has built a great network in doing so.

When Ryan isn't work he enjoys time with his beautiful wife and 4 wonderful children. They play board games, video games, read scriptures and are actively involved in a Christian church. He resides in Ammon, ID where he works from home and enjoys Idaho trout fishing when he gets the time.

He doesn't have any experience with writing technical articles and hopes to be able to share his knowledge and experiences to help others.
