Ryan graduated from high school in Rochester Hills, Michigan in June of 2012 and is currently enrolled at the University of Michigan. He was a self-described activities “junkie” in high school and participated in many different clubs, including FIRST robotics. Before traveling to San Antonio for the FIRST Alamo Regional competition, he knew relatively little about Rackspace. However, after meeting Klee Kleber, a Rackspace SVP and a judge at the event, he researched the company and learned more. "Everything I read, listened to, and watched about Rackspace was intriguing and impressive; when I was given the opportunity to intern, I could not resist," says Cesiel.
In his spare time, he manages a small business where he develops and hosts websites for individuals, organizations, and businesses. He enjoys tons of different kinds of music, and is an avid college football fan (M Go Blue!). Of late, you'll find him filling his Saturdays with 114,000 of his closest friends in the Big House.
