Coming to History Factory from a previous role as an exhibit designer, Ryan’s educational background in industrial design gives a product-focused spin to the research and thought processes behind his work. His design passion lies somewhere in the infinite space between experience and environmental production, and he has a particular interest in utilizing the most recent innovations in creative technology.

“Our work forces constant learning and growth—not just for us but also for our clients. Pulling forward proof from the past allows us to rise and meet the challenges of our ever-changing, fast-paced world head-on. It really is one of the most rewarding aspects of what we do.”

As part of the History Factory design team, Ryan’s skillset has grown far beyond exhibit work. Since joining in 2019, he has completed a wide range of design projects, including anniversary publications and branded website experiences. In his spare time, you can find him on the queer kickball field, browsing museum exhibits, rolling a D20 for a perception check or taking a run past Washington, D.C.’s beautiful national monuments.
