Ryan Douglas, Sachse :: co-founded CampReward, an online travel company that helps people find their perfect camping vacations in RV parks and campgrounds. He also created Openkey, which allows hotels to give guests room access through an app on their phone and prevent the waste of nearly 288 million plastic key cards per year in the U.S. Ryan previously worked as assistant executive director of a special needs summer camp called Camp John Marc; director of the Barton Creek Resort and Spa; and regional area manager of Expedia. During his time at UNT, he remembers hanging out at the Flying Tomato and going on several camping trips each year as part of the Recreation and Leisure Studies Society. “The times that we spent together in the outdoors were amazing,” he says. “We had the opportunity to shape the future of new students as well as build bonds with friends that I still have today."
