Ryan works in the digital world. His skills combine three traditionally distinct disciplines -- content producer, UI designer, front-end developer -- allowing him to satisfy all phases of a product.
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.
He recently improved the site's load time by 75 percent and is currently progressing its mobile experience.
For the last two-plus 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. He's taken on more design responsibilities of late.
Ryan also spent time as an ESPN.com contributor.
