Digital Operative welcomes our newest Senior Developer, Ryan Keelaghan. Ryan started developing websites in Jr High and never looked back! A Los Angeles native, Ryan and his wife are die-hard Rams fans who enjoy watching every game together and, currently, stressing about the Super Bowl next week. #GoRams!

When Ryan is out of the office he enjoys cooking, even getting into Sous Vide. Ryan has also been to 219 shows, at 95 venues featuring 421 artists in total- talk about a music lover!?

We are so thrilled to have Ryan join our San Diego office and Digital Operative crew! ryan_k_4H4A7548

Let's get to know Ryan a little better with some rapid fire questions:
  • Website you visit the most: Reddit.com, NBCNews.com, t3micro.com
  • iPhone or Android: Android for life!
  • Favorite phone app: I don’t really have one, other than the standard ones like Gmail or Twitter or ones for food delivery
  • Favorite industry related website: StackOverflow for sure, it’s the greatest resource for any Magento developer.
  • If you could only visit one website for the rest of your life, what site would that be: ONLY one website? I’m a web developer! That’s so unfair!
  • Something you say frequently: “Dude”, like the stereotypical socal guy that I am
  • First thing you do when you get to the office: Coffee…
  • If you could have any job in the world, what would it be: Still a programmer, but I would be developing my own apps and websites based off ideas I’ve had over the years.
  • How do you take your coffee: My “treat drink” is a large Coffee Bean cold brew, with a splash of almond milk and a half scoop of Hazelnut powder. But if it’s brewed coffee, then black with no sugar or cream or anything else.
  • Fun fact about yourself: The first connection that brought my wife and I together was our shared ability to rap the entire Hamilton soundtrack. We ended up seeing it when it came to L.A., and if you ever get the opportunity, I highly, highly recommend seeing it
  • Favorite thing to do on a Saturday: Binging a TV show with my wife, playing a video game, and going on a bike ride
  • Cats or Dogs: Dogs, but we don’t have one yet, just a bearded dragon, Flynn (named after the Tron character, of course).
  • What would you sing at Karaoke night: Always tracks that get the crowd singing along, like “Don’t Stop Believing” or “Bohemian Rhapsody”
  • What was your favorite or most memorable childhood injury: I got hit square in the eye with a baseball when I was 13. My buddy Clint and I were playing catch and he didn’t hear me call “hold up” to talk to a coach. Had to get stitches, and ended up with a crazy black eye for a few days, but there were no hard feelings or anything
  • Which store (online or brick and mortar) would you like to max out your credit card: Amazon (is that answer cheating?)
  • Can you play any instruments? Piano
  • What's your favorite snack from the snack cart: Those granola bars in the green wrappers that explode with crumbs, I forget the name but they’re great.
  • What musician or band would you love to see live (alive or deceased): I’ve seen pretty much everyone I would want to see, but if I could, I wish I could go back in time and see a few artists during their heyday, like Oasis in 1997, NWA in 1989, Stravinsky in 1913, Gorillaz in 2006
