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.
Occasionally I write about mental health, design thoughts, and I like to tell stories.
- Practicing my conversation skills
- No One Was Harmed
- The Trouble With Focus
- Yes, Achieving World Peace Is Possible
- From Designer to Design Lead
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!
Outside of work, my personal practice extends into various media. Here are some of those projects.
