Ryan Lagoy

Engineer. Dreamer. Adreneline Seeker.

I love adventure. I am fascinated with all things engineering. I hike, surf, ski, and kite. I fail a lot and I sometimes succeed, but I love every minute of it.

My name is Ryan Lagoy, and this is my personal website. I've created this site to house snippets of my life, from my engineering creations to photography projects (future addition). And, it is a continually evolving site.

I've also wanted to share my professional background. Here you'll see that my professional passions lie in both the analog and digital worlds, from radio frequency systems and electromagnetics to software and digital signal processing.
