During high school, Ryan worked summer jobs that included roofing, masonry, and siding. Having had a taste of construction and thinking that drafting might make a good career, Ryan chose to shadow a couple Weaver drafters and estimators for his high school senior project. Toward the end of his senior year, the employees he had been shadowing told him that Weaver was interested in hiring a draftsman and would be willing to train him. He applied and was hired.

Taking a customer’s dream and turning it into a design that fits their budget has indeed been a career Ryan enjoys. Ryan appreciates Weaver’s care for their employees. Not only are employees compensated well for their work, but the leadership also goes above and beyond by caring about all facets of their lives. 

Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife and five children. Together they’re in the process of starting a small hobby farm. When not working on their farm, Ryan enjoys all kinds of sports and any time spent outside.
