Ryan Chamberlain


Ryan has nearly form-fitted his experience for Greenlight's social entrepreneurship mission, having spent time in newspaper journalism, corporate PR and marketing, and non-profit issue-advocacy endeavors. Ryan began his career as a reporter for Iowa's Des Moines Register, and ultimately migrated to San Francisco to represent high-tech start-up clients over the heyday of the dot-com boom. He then added a litany of political campaigns and community causes over the next several Bay Area election cycles. He has thus far orchestrated seven San Francisco and Silicon Valley electoral campaigns, and most recently completed an elaborate social media cause-marketing campaign for the HP Palm brand. Ryan received his BA in journalism and political science at Iowa State University, followed with the political campaigning Master's program at the University of Florida.
