Ryan C. Duke, CAP, MSM – Skyfall Digital Media CEO
Ryan is a native of Franklin, Virginia who has been building websites for over 15 years; he has been working on computers and networks for over 25 years. His professional career, education, and hobbies were the perfect mix of experiences that helped further his understanding of computers, networks, and how the internet functions. Ryan has worked as an Industrial Automation Programmer for a large public utility in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia for the past 22 years (Instrumentation, Electrical, DCS/PLC programming, etc.). This position (and the ones that led up to it) have given him a multiplicity of opportunities to spend countless hours working with hardware and software that are directly applicable to the services that are offered by Skyfall Digital Media.
He is also a veteran PC gamer which by its very nature led the way to Ryan pursuing a career that is heavily laced with all things related to Information Technology. His interest in gaming is what led to his first personal website which was hosted on a server within his home. That server has since been virtualized and is still up and running with a couple of Battlefield 2 game servers running on it. These experiences along with Ryan’s professional career created a learning environment that led to where Ryan is today.
