Hi, I'm Ryan.
I like making things. I'm currently making things for NerdWallet, a personal finance company that aims to provide clarity for all of life's financial decisions.
As Lead Writer at NerdWallet, I write articles, appear on podcasts and create tools and graphics that demystify the world of insurance.
Check out the previous work I've done down below ▼
"Achievement is not what you've done, but what you've gained from your experience."
Writer → Sr. Writer → Principal Researcher
As a Principal Researcher at Gartner, I got to analyze and write about the digital marketing channel performance of over 1,400 brands in 16 industries. I provided best practices and actionable advice for how marketing leaders can follow in the footsteps of top-performing brands.
Social Media Manager
Accenture is the world's largest management consultancy by revenue. I had the pleasure of working on an on-going basis (3+ years) creating content and managing three of their corporate social media accounts, writing to a cumulative audience of over 250,000 IT, marketing, and cloud computing practitioners.
Kimbul, LLC was an e-commerce business operating predominantly on Amazon's online platform. As sole owner, I did everything from sourcing and private-labeling products to initiating a comprehensive marketing campaign that resulted in my products receiving a 94% 5-star product review average.
A few things I'm particularly proud of
At Gartner, I created and presented three, hour-long webinars live to our clients on mobile marketing, advertising and email marketing.
Calculators and other tools
At NerdWallet, I built finance calculators and tools to help people understand their finance needs.
In-depth research reports
At Gartner, I authored in-depth research reports on marketing best practices and emerging trends.
At NerdWallet, I've appeared as an expert on the SmartMoney podcast.
