Ryan Bateman


I am a Developer at Hook 42.

Although I got my start as a graphic designer in college, I slowly transitioned to full-stack and front-end web development. I got my start with Drupal in 2010 under Drupal 6 and in the last few years have fallen head-over-heels for Drupal 8. I love seeing the way that open source software like Drupal can foster amazing things on the web!

I’m a lifelong Alaskan, and I spend a lot of my spare time doing many Alaskan-ish and not-so-Alaskan-ish things: biking (touring, mountain, ‘round town - any and all!), hunting, and fishing are among my favorite outdoor activities. Programming, pinball, playing music, reading, and card and video games are some of my favorite indoor activities. I currently reside in the frosty interior of Alaska in the city of Fairbanks.
