I like to smash together behavior analysis and film making together. There are two ways to get involved. I'm not attending this event, but since it's in my hometown I'm treating it the same!


A meetup is super informal, we hang out and capture some of the fun parts of the meetup. If you want to stay in touch with the formal meetup for all cities you submit the quick form below.


Collaborations help this channel thrive. There are a lot of ideas out there, and a whole lot of logistics that aren't really seen. It takes a lot of hard work to pull off a great video upfront. If you think you are up to the challenge, and have an idea then click the drop down below and let me know! I'll check it out and let you know if we can fit it in while I'm there and further instructions.

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.
