Hi 👋

👨‍💻 My name is Rian and I live in Portland, OR with my wife and two daughters. I am Head of Postmark at ActiveCampaign. My work portfolio and blog for product managers, technology leaders, and other curious minds is called Elezea.

🤗 This site you’re on right now represents the other side of the work blog—you know, business in the front, personality and obsessions in the back. It’s where I collect and share interesting things from around the web, post pictures of what I’m listening to, and sometimes write a few personal thoughts. You can follow new posts via RSS, on Micro.blog, or as part of my Mastodon feed.

🎸 My side project is a site with real-time listening data and hand-picked music recommendations for your enjoyment. Check it out here.

☕️ Let’s connect further on Mastodon or Bluesky.

👌 You look nice today.
