Ryan Miller, 35, founded San Luis Obispo’s Etna Interactive in 2002 offering Internet design and marketing for medical professionals. “It is clear that Ryan puts the life balance of all of his employees before any other company initiative,” says Eric Hubbs of Collaboration LLC, citing Etna benefits like flexibility to maximize family time. Co-owner of former San Luis Obispo Internet provider The Grid, Miller earned an environmental engineering degree from Cal Poly. With two volunteer awards from Gay and Lesbian Alliance of the Central Coast, Miller and his 14-year partner Jeff Kimball help support youth shunned by their families. He taught Aikido classes for 10 years and has served on the Friday Night Live board of directors for two years.
