Ryan A Bush is the founder of Designing the Mind LLC and author of Designing the Mind: The Principles of Psychitecture. Ryan’s background is in the design of systems – he works with tech startups to design and develop everything from patented physical products, to software, to buildings, to business models. But his most relevant credential is a lifelong appetite for introspective investigation, ravenous reading, and obsessive self-optimization. For more than a decade, he has been studying the insights of ancient teachers, practical philosophers, and cognitive scientists. He built DTM because he saw the need for an advanced handbook for psychological growth and self-mastery.
