After studying 3D animation and graphic design, Ryan began his professional career as a motion designer developing network promos and show package design for clients such as Discovery, Science, I.D. and Dish Network. 

Years later Ryan would branch off to co-found a post-production and motion design studio of his own. As creative director and frequently lead animator, Ryan helped develop close working relationships with clients like Ford, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Bravo, Travel and National Geographic.

After six years at the helm, Ryan sold his stake in the studio to set out on his own. While freelance creative directing at other agencies, Ryan developed and led projects for HBO, Adult Swim, Spectrum and others.

Relocating to Silicon Valley in 2018, Ryan joined tech giant, Cisco, as Creative Director of CEO Communications. In his client-side role, Ryan leverages his background in visual storytelling and conceptual design to help the company's executive leadership team to explore and develop new and more engaging ways of telling Cisco's story.

Outside of work Ryan spends his time corralling three kids, golfing, cooking and exercising his creative muscle by envisioning a world in which the Colorado Avalanche are not a perennial disappointment.
