Who Am I?

Third person isn't really my style and I am not a writing professional by any stretch of the imagination, so here we go.

I have a strong background in the fine arts: painting, drawing, sculpture, which began at an early age. As a kid I always enjoyed playing with legos, drawing, coloring and creating art. That passion continued into my adulthood where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in graphic design from Eastern Illinois University in 2006.

My strength as a graphic designer is in print & digital design where I work with the Adobe Creative Collection on a daily basis allowing me to develop proficient skills in the software. I am responsible for projects from conception to completion. This responsibility has allowed me to work 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 a daughter that keep us very busy and quite entertained. I am also an avid archer and bow hunter. I enjoy spending time outdoors shooting my Martin bows, target clays, dog training and hunting in the spring/fall. Hunting is one of the very few things that will get me out of bed early on the weekends and has become a true passion of mine in addition to my art and family. I am currently a Pro Staff member for Bow String Depot and acting Field Staff member for Real Avid, Bucks and Beards Scents, HAWK Treestands and Deer Crossing Archery.

I was consistently impressed with his high level of creativity. He is a top-notch graphic designer and artist, a tireless problem-solver, and a team player through and through. He could always be counted on to help encourage the team and champion their efforts.

David Trang, Motif Investing

Having worked with Ryan on numerous projects, I can say that he exemplifies all the great things about art and graphic design in general. It's rare to find someone with as much passion for their work.

Mary Leonard, Professor of Art

Ryan is a visually strong designer who pays a great deal of attention to detail in the design and production processes. He is a self starter, easy going and very congenially individual with a keen sense of visual awareness.
