I'm Ryan, a Chicago-based graphic designer with a lifelong habit of making digital interfaces. My other obsession is musical theatre, which has grounded my design process in strong storytelling and empathy for others. These days, I create cool things at Razorfish.
I studied design at Shillington graphic design school in New York City and won a GDUSA award for my work there. I also hold an MFA from NYU and a bachelor's degree from Vanderbilt University. I like to joke that I have a master's in collaboration, but that's essentially the truth.
Outside of the design world, I'm a composer and musician who has worked on Broadway shows, recordings, and films.

Last names can be hard. Mine sounds like CorelDRAW or Steve Carell. It almost rhymes with the hand sanitizer. Yeah, you got it.
