The Traveling Behavior Analyst (Dreams Are Real) │ The Daily BA │ S1W6E5

What to Expect

I spent ~4 months on the road from October 2017 - New Years 2018... 23 airports, 28 different beds/floors, 6 different countries, and 10 different states in the U.S. Each trip had something to do with behavior analysis - often times speaking or hosting an event like Next Gen Revolution Summit. I don't take any of this for granted. So grateful! I wanted to put this one out to remind everyone that dream do come true. Pursue that passion!!! It's almost 10 years in this field, and it's just starting to get realllly interesting! The countless 100+ hour weeks are catching up with me in more ways than one, but in some ways it's leading to meeting some inspiring people, inspiring others myself, and seeing parts of the world I didn't know I wanted to see when I was younger. Let's talk about place you want to go, things that you dream of achieving, and how we could come together as a community to help each other achieve those dreams in the comments below!  👊👊👊

Hey, I'm Ryan. I usually go by Ryan O or RYANO. I hail from northern Nevada in the grungy, yet surprisingly classy, (and newly renovated) Reno, Nevada. I like my climate like I like my data: evolving, uncompromising, and progressive. I am a master of science; that is, I have an M.S. in Applied Behavior Analysis, however, my interests have grown to include many other interests, including entrepreneurship and capturing perspectives and stories through various mediums. These interests and skills have allowed me to work with a lot of great people. I've started three businesses, started numerous active joint venture agreements, a behavioral think-tanka podcast, a professional development movement, helped organizations that support people with Intellectual Disabilities, to list a few. Currently, I lead product development and distribution for High Sierra Industries as a Learning Systems Development Specialist. I focus outside this role on building a community of thought leaders and doers to create content that increases the transparency of behavior analytic technologies with the hopes of creating a platform that truly saves the world. My interests are all over, from artificial intelligence and machine learning applications to the theory and philosophy behind Why We Do What We Do ( In my spare time you can find me consuming social media, prepping/climbing a giant mountain, or walking around with my camera in my hand (and, occasionally, all simultaneously). Connect with me personally on most all social platforms via @TheDailyBA and let me know what drives you to pursue the Behavior Analysis vision.
