My name is Ryan Fox.
Originally from ChIcago. Currently living in Oakland. Work for a Biotech company in South San Francisco, supporting Engineering / Construction projects.
Work in Biotech/Pharmaceuticals industry. Majored in Sociology and minored in Psychology and History, then went to grad school for Sociology, so kind of weird that I ended up in Biotech/Pharma.

I play guitar, so sometimes just want to stay in and play some music. Always looking to jam with other people, so drop me a line if you want to play some music.
