Ryan is a 31-year-old data analyst living in Palatine. He is a lifelong resident of Chicagoland, having grown up in Elgin and attended public schools in District U-46. He graduated from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism in 2008, and earned his Master of Public Policy degree with Honors from the University of Chicago in 2015. His professional career includes time at the Northwest Herald in Crystal Lake, Crain’s Chicago Business, Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and the White House. He’s proud of what he’s accomplished in his career, but it has been anything but a smooth ride. Like so many of his generation, Ryan found gainful employment almost impossible to come by in the aftermath of the Great Recession. He carries six figures of student loan debt that he won’t pay off until 2045. He knows what it means to struggle, and he will fight tooth and nail to build a new economy that includes millennials too.
