Ryan is a Software Engineer at Unity. They joined the Plastic SCM team in winter 2021.
They originally started at Unity as an intern working on source control related projects. From
there, they began working full time developing in a variety of areas including the Unity editor,

I’ve been a gamer and a geek all my life ever since I first played Super Mario Bros. when I was
5 years old.
After changing from my first career goal of being an architect to a computer engineer, I enjoyed
developing small indie game projects back home in Puerto Rico. And after I was convinced that game
development is where I should be next, I wanted to learn more about the gaming industry, so I moved
to Washington State to get my master's degree in computer science at DigiPen Institute of
Technology. Found out that as much as I truly enjoy making the games, I enjoy developing the tools
for content creators (artists, designers, music/sounds creators, etc.) even more. This is why being
at Unity is such a great spot.
My interests and Hobbies are:
Cooking and eating what I cook, even better if enjoyed with friends and/or family.
Playing guitar, mostly metal, and rock.
Playing video games - My favorite genres are story-rich games, but lately have been playing a lot
of multiplayer games that let you enjoy the fun with other people, like Among Us, Jackbox Games,
Rocket League, COD sometimes, etc.
I have a love for indie games, and to see what new ideas people are coming up with, and most
recently, started to play some VR games since I was finally able to get an oculus quest.
Going on hikes, traveling whenever and wherever I can.
Reading fiction and non-fiction, listening to informational podcasts, learning in general.
I joined Unity as a software engineer after graduating from the University of Washington with a
bachelor's in computer science.
In my free time, I am an avid digital artist, writer, and game developer. A couple of random facts
about myself: chickens are my absolute favorite animal (they’re incredible), and Portal 2 is
arguably the best video game ever.
