Combining superb organization and planning abilities with an outgoing personality, Ryan brings energy, expertise and excitement to ED/MTC, making even finance ‘fun.' A native Hoosier, he performed with the show choir, played tuba and served as Drum Major of the Carroll High School Band in Fort Wayne. Ryan holds a BA in Liberal Studies and an MA in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Central Florida. As an integral part of the Walt Disney World operations team for six years, he worked in attractions, Epcot creative operations and facility operations at Disney's Wide World of Sports, a perfect fit for his customer service skills and “can do” attitude. Ryan served as Assistant to the Producer of America's oldest un-juried fringe festival (Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival), doing everything from stage work to ticket sales to sophisticated marketing and community relations. The Orlando Shakespeare Theater was so impressed with his work, it made him a PlayFest Associate to take advantage of his production skills.
