About

Me

I'm Ryan Ragona. I use cryptography to solve privacy and security problems for a living. I've spent my career making software at Robinhood, AWS, Twitch, Sony, and more.

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, and I love it here. I'm a father of four, a musician, I like to kayak and skateboard. Humans are more important than money, and kindness matters. Security happens at the intersection between people and systems, and empathy is a job requirement.

This is my personal site, with writing occasionally topical to my profession. I do not represent any of my current or past employers.

Wanna internet stalk me? I'm easy to find. Half-finished code on Github, rampant and unabashadly political retweeting on Twitter, resumé on LinkedIn.
