In 2000 Ryan created the cheezy short story series The Totally Fucked Up Adventures of Herman the Cheese Man, about an all-American piece of Swiss cheese who had a disturbing poop fetish. In 2001 he quit writing Herman to work on his infamous audio sketch series Coach & Russell. This was Ryan's first taste of fame, and he liked it. He would hear his fellow classmates quote his sketches as he walked down the high school halls. He kept the series running for two years before he quit to spend more time animating in Macromedia Flash.
In 2006 Ryan joined forces with Agon Studios to publish Ostrich, Hippo & Jesus on Grass into a series of comic books, currently available for purchase at Star Clipper Comics in the St. Louis area.
Ryan has been developing an animated television series the past several years that he plans on pitching to networks in the near future. He has written a half-hour script for a pilot and over 90 episode storylines revolving around his original cast of characters.
Ryan recently graduated from Webster University with a bachelor's degree in Animation, where he won several awards for his cartoons, videos, and web site.
