hi, i'm ryan
creative leader, strategic thinker & outdoor enthusiast
I have a strong background in the fine arts: painting, drawing, & sculpture, which began at an early age. As a kid I always enjoyed drawing, coloring and playing with legos. That passion continued into my adulthood where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Eastern Illinois University in 2006.
My strength is in print & digital design. I work with the full Adobe Creative Suite on a daily basis which has allowed me to develop exceptional skills in the software and conduct work at an extremely efficient pace. I have also worked with a number of vendors to achieve the best possible product for each project I work on.
When I am not at the office, I really enjoy spending time with my family. I am married to my high-school sweetheart. We have two sons and two daughters that keep us very busy and quite entertained. I am also an avid archer & bow hunter. I enjoy spending time outdoors shooting arrows, target clays, dog training & hunting in the spring/fall. Hunting has become of the very few things that will get me out of bed before sunrise on the weekends and is true passion of mine in addition to my art and family.
