Ryan is passionate about politics, startups, and the permanent things. His first company represented a Chilean equestrian products line (if you don’t count lemonade stands and similar childhood enterprises). And while in the process of starting a second company, politics intervened. After running multiple successful campaigns to give long-time incumbents the boot, he focused his attention on public communications and founded Vici Media Group, a creative agency and communications firm. Now Vici Media Group counts among its clients and friends many Republican legislators, statewide candidates, PACs, and organizations, as well as a number of regular businesses and non-profits.
He attended Hillsdale College, where he received a degree in English with honors. He has traveled to 15 countries and studied at language school in three of those, including his grandmother’s home of Chile. Ryan reads old books, loves community, and enjoys creating kick-a** media and communications strategies for good causes. (Ahh... and don’t forget about the bourbon and cigars!)
