Hello everyone, I'm Ryan!
I am a passionate production employee in the animation industry. While getting a Bachelor's in Astronomy (CU Boulder) and a BFA in 3D Graphics and Animation (CU Denver), I spent 10 years in design thinking, education, event planning, and the guest services spaces before beginning my journey in the animation industry.
With my background as both an artist and a scientist, I have experienced the incredible importance of organizational and communicational skills needed to maneuver large-scale projects. As an organization in collaborative projects is strengthened, so too is the time and energy an artist can use to experiment, create, and grow. I hope that I can be a part of the industry to empower others to see their creative visions come to life!
I currently work for Walt Disney Animation Studios as a Production Assistant. In the past, I have most notably been production manager for my senior thesis short film project as well as a team project coordinator and PI researcher for the Comcast Media and Technology Center, both at the University of Colorado Denver.
Outside of learning the production trade, I am passionate about 3D lighting, character shading, singing, video games, rock climbing, reading, and photography!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my site! Please contact me if you have any questions about my current projects, research, or excitement to work in the animation industry!
