View a portfolio of his work.
Fresh out of journalism school in the summer of 2007, he co-founded Inside the Hall, a site covering Indiana Hoosiers basketball. Over the last three years to date, traffic has eclipsed 50 million page views. He is responsible for the design and development of the site, as well as content pieces on and around game day.
Ryan traveled to Hawaii in November to cover the Hoosiers in the Maui Invitational.
In December, he went live with a re-design focused on bringing content to the forefront no matter the viewport size. He also collected behavior data to help shape the product's navigation and layout.
For the last 2.5 years, he's worked as a front-end web developer at Siren in Chicago's West Loop. During his time there, he's deepened his front-end knowledge, learning version control with GIT, form validation, MySQL database management and CSS3 animations.
Other recent side projects include a golf leaderboard web app and the development and design of The Farmhouse Classic. The site adapts for tablet and mobile devices. He also entered the Divvy Data Project in 2014.
