What I'm About

Hey, I'm Ryan. I usually go by Ryan O or RYANO. I hail from northern Nevada in the grungy, yet surprisingly classy, (and newly renovated) Reno, Nevada. I spent the first ten years of my professional career studying psychology and behavioral science. Now I leverage that history to lead four different brands.

As I've pursued these ventures I've come to realize that there are a few areas I enjoy the most.

The Daily BA 

Simply put, despite the job, the competing values (e.g., family, friends, exercise, health, experiences), the podcast, my business, etc. I asked myself: Can I create engaging behavior analytic content that I would want to watch? That you would want to watch? I upload daily M-F for 52 weeks in 2018 - powered by a community, but with my own blood, sweat and tears. Check it out here.

Why We do what we do 

This podcast and future YouTube channel launched in April of 2017 with the goal of creating an enjoyable listener experience about psychological concepts that anyone can easily consume. I serve as a co-host, producer and run most of the social media accounts. There's a fantastic team involved you can check out here and a support page here.

Fall of 2018 I partnered with two other companies (Bedrock Clinic & Research Center, and BehaviorMe), each fueled by behavioral science, technology, entrepreneurship and doers with the aim of creating transparency for behavior analytic technologies and a platform for interdisciplinary solutions to real-world problems. 


In 2012 myself and a handful of passionate, confused, and eager behavioral scientists started meeting weekly to discuss our future, collaborate, set goals, and provide the support network we always wanted. Think of it as an online behavioral science think tank. We're currently positioning to be an incubator for behavioral scientists around the world.

As I've pursued these ventures I've come to realize that there are a few areas I enjoy the most.

Areas of Passion


Forging new ground and creating opportunities to add value that is both ethical and moral will forever be a passion of mine.


I'll take a 15-minute call with anyone. Nothing is achieved alone. Complementary skill sets are the key to success.

Creating content

Capturing perspectives and sharing them with the world is a current ~3-5 year mission of mine. I capture video, write content, and am up-to-date on most all social platforms.


I've found that my 10 years experience in behavioral science and new-found passion for film making and social media leaves me in a unique position to provide to others.

These interests and skills have allowed me to work with a lot of great people. I've started three businesses (two successful, one dissolved), capture and share perspectives through various mediums (e.g., written, video, audio, livestream), helped organizations incorporate leading behavioral science technology and tools with their consumers and staff, to list a few.

I focus outside this role on building a community of thought leaders and doers to create content that increases the transparency of behavior analytic technologies with the hopes of creating a platform that truly saves the world.

My interests are all over, from artificial intelligence and machine learning applications to the theory and philosophy behind why we do what we do. In my spare time you can find me consuming social media, prepping/climbing a giant mountain, or walking around with my camera in my hand (and, occasionally, all simultaneously).
