I’m not the Aussie footballer.
I’m not akin to the matriarch of American modernism.
I’m not the proprietor of hard-working hand creams.
I’m not the founder of an agency in Chi-Raq.
I’m not Bryan, and neither is my wife.

I’m Ryan.
West coast native.
Detroit survivor.
Ex-car designer.
Husband.
Father.
Driver.
BKLYN’R.
Copywriter.
Creative Director.
Burrito maker.

I like to create smart ideas and tell engaging stories.
Traditionally. Digitally. Whateverly.
With great people.
For brands I believe in.

Currently freelance at R/GA NY.
Open to full-time opportunities.
