A Bit About Me

Creativity and leadership has been at the center of Ryan’s professional career which spans over a decade. Before focusing his talents on video and film production, Ryan’s work ranged from in-house creative strategy to development and execution of marketing and mixed-media campaigns, brand design, copywriting and graphic design.

Most recently, Ryan has been a creative content director and film/video director developing and executing video marketing concepts and strategies that are strikingly unique and stand out among content feeds filled with templated, low production value content. He serves as executive creative director for JBRY Creative, a modern content marketing agency.

Ryan excels at creative ideation and conceptualizing resourceful solutions that stand distinct. He often freelances for agencies nationwide – from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, Seattle, and Chicago. Hire him for your next project at ryan@leewayfilms.com

He also tries not to speak in the third person this much.
