For Vryan, the original plan was to major in accounting. Instead, he ended up triple majoring in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, and Biotechnology. During his career, when Vryan saw a need to better automate OS patches to prevent malware attacks, he took it upon himself to build what is now the Panacea Update Manager, a first-of-its-kind standalone Microsoft Patch Manager that supports cross-compatibility between multiple automation systems, from the ground up. He has contributed heavily to the industry in standards, products, mentorship, and project success. He has helped develop alarm standards in the Industrial Gases space that were used to contextualize, justify, and track alarms leading to better informed operators and safer plants.
Fun Fact: Vryan is a big foodie and makes it a point to try a local dish wherever he goes.
