Coupled with his forecasting and broadcasting duties, Ryan currently teaches in the Arlington Public School System, providing instruction in courses related to high-school and college level Earth and Environmental Science, Physics, Astronomy, and GIS Mapping.
His love of all things meteorology began at a very early age growing up in Northeastern Ohio; he began his broadcast meteorology career as a weather producer for ABC-7/News Channel 8. When he is not teaching he can usually be found forecasting and broadcasting the weather; if he is doing neither he's probably up at a Penn State Football game.
Ryan has a B.S. from Penn State University, a M.A. from Virginia Tech, and an Ed.S. from George Washington University. He has also taken graduate level meteorology courses through the USDA Graduate School broadcast meteorology program and is a member of the American Meteorological Society.
