Life Outside of Calvin
When he isn’t working, Ryan loves spending time with his wife Melissa (another Calvin biology alum), sons Kyler and Devin, and beagle mix Duncan. He is a huge St. Louis Cardinals and University of Michigan fan, and also enjoys baseball, basketball, running, reading, watching movies, photography, and playing German-style board games.
