Hi there, I’m Ryan — writer, speaker, artist, and design lead at Broad­cat.

I’m an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary designer and front-end devel­oper with over 10 years expe­ri­ence in brand­ing, instruc­tional design, and user expe­ri­ence.

Since 2016 I’ve been lead­ing and man­ag­ing the design team at Broad­cat, and we’re rethink­ing how employ­ees inter­act with cor­po­rate com­pli­ance train­ing.

I’m most inter­ested in how thought­ful design is used to create access for those who need it, and I’m driven by remov­ing bar­ri­ers. I believe in empa­thy, meet­ing people where they are, and con­tin­u­ally renew­ing my aware­ness of the world.

Design Lead at Broad­cat

I’m work­ing on some case stud­ies about my man­age­ment phi­los­o­phy, and while I work on those, here’s some stuff you can check out.

Writ­ing

Occa­sion­ally I write about mental health, design thoughts, and I like to tell sto­ries.

📦 Here's all the writing.

Speak­ing

I’ve spoken to groups of stu­dents at South­ern Methodist Uni­ver­sity, Texas Women’s Uni­ver­sity, and East Car­olina Uni­ver­sity about design, web stuff, and their career paths, and I’m avail­able for speak­ing in early 2019. For speak­ing requests, send me an email!

Per­sonal Prac­tice

Out­side of work, my per­sonal prac­tice extends into var­i­ous media. Here are some of those projects.

Say hello!

I’m on Twit­ter and Insta­gram mostly, and for speak­ing and writ­ing requests, send me an email. You can see my code on Github or Code­pen, and my full work his­tory is on LinkedIn. For ver­i­fi­ca­tion, here I am on Key­base.
