Ryan Cook, BM

IT Tecnician

“Being diagnosed with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) at a young age, growing up was challenging. I joined the CooperRiis IT Team in early 2023 and love what the community offers; it is a special workplace. Combining my desire to help others and my love for technology, I rarely work a day in my life.” 

Originally from Pennsylvania, Ryan obtained a BM degree (Bachelor of Music) in Music Production and Recording Technology from Shenandoah University in Virginia. 

He worked as a Sound Engineer at the Flat Rock Playhouse in Hendersonville, NC, for several years but recognized during the pandemic that life had other plans for him. He obtained a part-time job in Information Technology and discovered he loved it just as much as what he was already doing. 

Ryan resides in Hendersonville, NC, with his beautiful wife, Emma, and their two fur babies, Hagrid and Sora. 

Ryan enjoys hiking, exploring new places, spending time with friends, and playing video games in his free time. Occasionally, he competes in tournaments for the video game “Super Smash Brothers Ultimate.”
