Joshua Ryan

Location: Orleans, ON

I grew up in the small Northern Ontario city of Timmins. Back home, I competed in the Chartered Accountants Challenge and worked with two Junior Achievement entrepreneurship companies.

I started my journey south in 2004, worked for a small business incubation company and on some contracts for the Canadian Space Agency and NASA. I eventually landed in Ottawa where I live with my rescued Border Collie. I started studies at AU in 2010, took a break for a few years but most recently completing studies in Political Science. My day job is as a security manager for the federal government. I’m also a reservist in the Canadian Armed Forces, currently working with the Army Cadet Program developing tomorrow’s leaders. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors, photography and keeping fit.
