About Me

Hello there! My name is Ryan Spegal, and I'm thrilled to share a bit about myself with you. With nearly 25 years of experience in web development, I've witnessed the ever-evolving landscape of the digital world. From the early days of the internet to the modern era, I've stayed at the forefront of this dynamic field, constantly honing my skills and embracing new technologies.

Beyond my professional endeavors, I am a devoted family man, cherishing the roles of both a loving husband and a proud father of four. Nestled in the beautiful state of Michigan, my wife and I find joy in raising our children amidst the vibrant surroundings. Life with our little ones is an adventure, especially with our two youngest still in diapers. Our backyard has become a haven where we indulge in quality time together, engaging in playful activities, firing up the grill for delicious meals, and creating lasting memories around cozy bonfires.

Throughout my life, gaming has played a significant role, serving as a catalyst for my passion in programming. Starting at a young age, I taught myself how to create websites and games. In fact, by the time I turned 13, I had already developed a functioning game called "RsBattle" that garnered a dedicated following. This early success not only fueled my teenage years but also nurtured my programming skills and ignited a lifelong love affair with coding.

While life took me on different paths during my twenties, I returned to my programming roots in my thirties with a renewed determination. Today, I boast expertise in a wide range of technologies, including PHP, NodeJS, MySQL, HTML, CSS, and more. This proficiency allows me to bring my creative visions to life and craft exceptional web experiences.

When I'm not immersed in the digital realm, I find solace in the world of eBiking. Embracing the freedom and thrill it offers, I love exploring the town at breakneck speeds or venturing into the untamed wilderness, zipping along dirt mountain bike trails. This exhilarating hobby has become a family affair, as my wife and I both own eBikes. Even our daughter is reaching an age where she can join in on the fun. To ensure no one is left behind, I've equipped my three sons with their own pull-behind attachments, ensuring unforgettable adventures for everyone.

In addition to my technological pursuits and outdoor escapades, I believe in striking a balance between competitiveness and enjoyment when it comes to gaming. Over the years, I've achieved remarkable feats within the gaming world, from being the first person in RuneScape to accomplish a particular challenge (99 Prayer @ 15 combat) to securing the coveted top ranks in World of Warcraft boss fights. Alongside these accomplishments, I've had the privilege of creating official fansites for various video games. However, as life has grown busier, my gaming time has become more limited. Nonetheless, when I do find the opportunity to dive into a gaming session, I strive to give my best and savor every triumphant moment.

So, whether I'm immersing myself in the world of web development, reveling in the joys of fatherhood, or embarking on thrilling eBike adventures, I approach each endeavor with enthusiasm, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to making the most of every experience. I'm delighted to share my journey with you, and I look forward to connecting with fellow enthusiasts and like-minded individuals along the way.
