Ryan is an Operating Partner at Point72 Ventures, focused on investments and portfolio company growth in Defense Tech.  

Prior to joining Point72 Ventures, Ryan led the Cambridge Project at the Defense Innovation Unit, bringing new talent to the national security innovation ecosystem.

My expertise is at the intersection of emerging tech and national security. 

Having worked as an end-user, builder, and policy advisor of new technology products for defense, I know how to bring the relevant stakeholders together to drive the opportunity to deliver the best results for national security. 

Community building fills my cup.

Bringing people together to get to real solutions is what motivates me. Learning from one another to find the best solutions to the biggest national security challenges excites me most about the work I do.
