Personal Statement: 

Ryan Price is a community-building, local-blogging, drum-playing, video-making, open-sourcing geek with a love of storytelling and an endless desire to discover how things work. In the past year, he has started a Drupal training business; attended interactive technology and open source conferences all over the world; helped to create several BarCamp, Ignite, DrupalCamp, and social media events; recorded over 80 hours of podcasts; uploaded almost 1,000 photos and 100 or more videos; written over 400 blog posts, plus thousands of comments and tweets(Ryan also controls 2 of the top 10 twitter accounts in Orlando); given talks on writing mission statements, storytelling, building communities with media, trends in technology and freelance; sat on an industry advisory council; not to mention hosting and attending dozens of meetups, art openings, theatre performances, local concerts, film screenings, poetry readings and supporting local businesses.

Oh, and sometimes he builds websites, starts companies, and listens to a painful number of podcasts, all while thinking the big thoughts.

He would doesn’t use the word “social media expert”, that’s too slimy. He does help people understand how to use these tools and push all kinds of information out on to the web, both for himself, and on behalf of others.

Ryan wants to help you build a community, design a product, get inside the heads of your customers, or just learn how to post some videos to your website.
