  • Ryan was the lead story consultant at a Beverly Hills talent agency, where he read hundreds of TV and film scripts.
  • He works in media production.
  • Ryan easily spends over five hours a day watching TV and movies, listening to film and TV podcasts, and more.


Ryan has been writing for close to two decades now. His first writing gigs were writing for surf documentaries before going on to produce and write branded content for a fashion retailer. This was followed by his time in L.A., where he worked at Paradigm Talent Agency in TV literary before making the move to being the agency's lead story consultant, writing script and book coverage full-time. While doing this, he continued to write stories, copy, and scripts. He moved to the Tetons where he wrote and developed projects for Brain Farm Digital Cinema before turning more to the journalistic side. His main media outlets at this moment are Business Insider, Mountain Weekly News, and several local and regional publications. He's also a freelance story producer for several companies, most notably Fisher Creative, a local photography and film production house that specializes in outdoor documentaries.


Ryan's BA in Business Marketing emphasis from University of San Diego started him on the fast track to understanding media from a business point of view. This means he can look at and write about film and TV both as works of art and as serious corporate projects with many varied moving parts and vested contributors. He was also once told that working his way up from the mailroom at a talent agency was like getting his graduate degree in entertainment.
