My name is Ryan Dey. I grew up by the beach in Delaware, and earned a degree in Computer Science in 2003. I moved to Oregon and earned a Master’s Degree in Geography in 2005. Since then, I’ve been working in the GIS industry focusing on 3D visualizations.
I am a naturalist. I have a great love for the natural world, and all the many wonders it contains. I particularly enjoy geomorphology, understanding landscapes and environments as they are now, how they were in the past, and what they may be like in the future. I am deeply concerned about how human activity has influenced the carbon cycle and search for ways to minimize our impact on that and other natural processes. I think the natural world is far more amazing than anything humans have ever created, and seek to share that knowledge with others in hopes that they see fit to join me in preserving the world we live in.
My talent, my gift, is my technical skills, and to a lesser extent, a design aesthetic. I have the ability to use photography and various forms of technology to share my naturalistic passions. I can build tools, create beautiful pictures, and synthesize unique visualizations that help people to see, explore, and understand the natural world we live in. This is my life’s thesis. This is my mission. This is how I will do my part to preserve and protect the world I love. My name is Ryan Dey, and I am Pro Earth.
