After completing his college degree at Humboldt State University, Maranatha High School alumnus, Ryan Johnson ’04, moved to San Diego. Ryan soon decided to embrace his entrepreneurial spirit and start his own business.
While a student at Maranatha, Ryan had taken a photography class. Now equipped with a new camera, he and his business partner began providing marketing services to local small businesses. Eager to succeed, their small business grew quickly. When Ryan heard about Google Business Photos, the extension of Google’s popular “street view” which explores inside a business, Ryan immediately recognized this product would be key to their business. He trained with Google to become an independent area rep and within a couple of months his business experienced explosive growth.
Recently Ryan came home to his alma mater, Maranatha High School, to provide a brand new virtual Google tour for the school. The school’s Marketing Director, Geoff Hurte, said, “It was a pleasure working with Ryan. He was professional and went above and beyond for our school. His photos are exceptional and we are pleased to add this high quality Google tour to our website.” Mr. Hurte feels this virtual tour will give prospective families a better sense of the campus beauty and collegiate infrastructure Maranatha has to offer.
