Whether it was drawing his favorite Super Friends characters, spending hours building with Lego or redesigning the logos of MLB teams, Ryan often could be found creating something as a child. He graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University in 2001 with degrees in Graphic Design and Photography.
Before returning to IWU, Ryan spent 22+ years as a designer and creative director on thousands of diverse projects. He has worked with major brands such as Nike Golf, Adidas, The North Face, Merrell, Lands’ End, Delta Faucet and Ruth’s Chris to name a few. His vast experience has equipped him with a firm understanding of how the design industry works and what it takes to be successful. Ryan wants nothing more than to enrich and inspire the lives of his students and motivate them to use their talents to glorify God by becoming the best graphic designers they can be.
When not sitting behind his computer designing, Ryan loves spending time with his family. He and his wife have three daughters and a son. He is also passionate about coaching basketball, soccer and baseball, as sports have always been a big part of Ryan’s life. He currently resides in Noblesville, Indiana.

Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design can be so simple, that’s why is it so complicated.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
