Born and raised in Sitka, Ryan grew up appreciating the lands and waters of the Tongass, but didn’t truly comprehend how incredible it is until he came back from college. He graduated with degrees in Graphic Design and German from Portland State University. While in college, Ryan was selected to be a US Ambassador and Fellow through the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange. He has also worked as an Art Director for Berliner Literarische Aktion. Since 2014, Ryan has been the graphic designer and project manager behind the beautiful and creative SCS annual calendar. He is grateful to be back on Lingít Aaní, and to leverage his creative, problem-solving, and communication skills for to support responsible stewardship on the Tongass and connect people all over the world with this place he calls home.
