Ryan broke up with meat after he realized that the cows he saw while on vacation would die in a slaughterhouse. A cookbook eventually convinced him to go vegan, and he joined a concert tour circuit to inform audiences across the U.S. about how animals endure miserable lives when they’re used for meat, dairy, and eggs. When he’s not exploring the latest artificial intelligence technology, Ryan enjoys riding rollercoasters, reading books, and doing everything he can to #EndSpeciesism.
